This Technical Service and its data output were updated in February 2022.
ICES provides as a technical service the data outputs of its 2021 advice on the deep-sea access regulation (ref. (EU)2016/2336) as coordinates for the EU waters area only (i.e. areas between 400 and 800 m in the EEZs of France, Spain, Portugal, and Ireland).
The data outputs include 1) a leaflet map showing the updated scenario and options and 2) the coordinates of the
updated scenario and options as PDF and CSV as well as XLSX and SHP files.
This technical service is based on ICES (2021) advice on the list of areas where VMEs are known to occur or are likely to occur and on the existing deep-sea fishing areas (ref. (EU) 2016/2336) and the reference within.
