UK: MMO Publishes Series of Information Reports

MMO Publishes Series of Information Reports

A series of reports on activities in and around English seas are published yesterday by the Marine Management Organisation (MMO).

The four new commissioned publications are part of the MMO’s work to identify and fill gaps in knowledge that marine planners, regulators and users currently face. The reports make recommendations on what information is needed to support MMO decisions, and also how the evidence base could be developed in the future.

They cover a range of topics – from fishing activity and leisure uses to the social and economic data on marine industries – and are available to all.

The information gathered will be used to shape marine plans, and to ensure all marine uses are fully taken account of as the MMO plans for the future of the seas.
