In 2021, ICES received 7733 new and resubmitted records of vulnerable marine ecosystem (VME) indicators and habitats in EU waters. These are located within the Celtic Seas ecoregion and Bay of Biscay and Iberian Coast ecoregion.

The geographical positions of areas subject to various protection and fisheries management regimes are included in this advice. Any bottom fishing on VME habitats will cause damage to these habitats.
