Marine habitat maps provide vital information on ‘what is where’. Consequently, marine habitat maps are necessary for understanding the distribution of impacts, the planning of sustainable human actives at sea and the placement of protected marine area. This project will combine recent high-value surveys of the physical seabed with additional fieldwork to produce new and more extensive maps for the BVI’ marine environment surround. The fieldwork will also examine the change in marine habitats over time and their current condition.
