This registry is specifically purposed with supporting OSPAR and HELCOM in providing information that will feed their regional assessments, and in reporting by its contracting parties to MSFD descriptor 11.1.1 (Low and mid frequency impulsive noise).
Norway lobster (Nephrops norvegicus) stocks have been identified by WGNEPH on the basis of their population distribution and characteristics, and established by separate Functional Units. The Functional Units (FU) are defined by the groupings of ICES statistical rectangles. The statistical rectangles making up each FU encompass the distribution of mud sediment on which Nephrops live.
