Abstract

The aim of the project was to improve the spatial resolution of data on essential fish habitats for key fish species (both of commercial and ecological relevance) in the South Inshore and South Offshore marine plan areas, and to assess the relative value of these fish habitats to the regional commercial fisheries productivity and the ecosystem function.

The report's recommendations were formulated on how to address the limitations in future studies to allow improvement of the methodology and its application.
