Marine ecological survey calendar

ABPmer’s marine ecological survey calendar shows the appropriate time to conduct a range surveys including coastal habitats, fish, invertebrates, marine mammals, seabirds and waterbirds.


Habitat and species surveys are needed for a variety reasons, from baseline assessments to inform EIAs and designation decisions to post consent monitoring and understanding management measure success.

However, to accurately assess habitat condition and/or species presence there are recommended times in which to undertake a survey. This means it is important to consider what may be required in the early stages of a project, to ensure programmes do not impact a project timeline.
