This shapefile contains the digitised polygon boundaries of biotopes recorded within the rocky shore regions of the Teesmouth and Cleveland Coast SPA. The resource has been created under the requirements of the Natural England Marine Monitoring Framework. This work aimed to conduct phase 1 biotope surveys along already established transects; a rapid phase 1 biotope survey of the surrounding area; and collect survey data on the species composition of different biotopes, distribution and abundance of target prey species (birdfood) and determine the size distribution of 3 selected prey species. This shapefile represents the digitised field maps produced under the phase 1 biotope surveys.
