Joint Nature Conservation Committee
For the further development of the UK’s Natura 2000 network, a network of nature protection areas established under the EU Birds and Habitats Directive, identifying discrete and persistent areas of relatively high harbour porpoise (Phocoena phocoena) density, was required for the UK marine area out to the 200 nautical miles limit. This report provides the results of detailed analyses of 18 years of survey data in the Joint Cetacean Protocol (JCP), undertaken to inform the identification of discrete and persistent areas of relatively high harbour porpoise (Phocoena phocoena) density in the UK marine area within the UK Exclusive Economic Zone (EEZ).
