The Working Group on Marine Habitat Mapping (WGMHM), chaired by Pål Buhl-Mortensen, Norway, convened at the ICES Headquarters in Copenhagen, Denmark, from 21–24 May 2013. Two new ToRs were introduced to the group shortly before the meeting (f and g). These ToRs were reported separately immediately after the meeting, as well as in this report. Experts also presented statuses on both on national and international mapping projects (ToR a and b). There have been recent contacts between three EGs, namely BEWG, WGEXT and WGMHM to start dealing with overlapping issues. These were also discussed during the meeting. WGMHM chaired by Pål Buhl-Mortensen, Norway, will meet at AZTI-Tecnalia in San Sebastian, from 19–23 May 2014.
