 This Technical Service is in response to an EU request to review benthic indicators and assessment methods used under the MSFD to assess the state/condition of seabed habitats. The review was conducted with input from the ICES Workshop to scope assessment methods to set thresholds and assess adverse effects on seabed habitats (WKBENTH2, 24-26 May and 8-10 June 2022). The final output of this Technical Service (Annex 1) is a compilation of the most operational assessment methods and indicators for seabed habitats under D6/D1 for the MSFD with all relevant information to compare the methods and indicators between one another.
