In collaboration with the Ministry of Agriculture, Food and Environment
and Biodiversity Foundation
, Oceana has provided new exciting data about species and deep-sea marine habitats to the Spanish Inventory of Natural Heritage and Biodiversity
. This project started in 2011 and its progress can be consulted on the interactive platform Biodiversia.es
. Oceana has provided dozens of descriptions of deep-sea marine habitats and has documented the presence of almost 200 species living in them, some of which haven´t been found before in those areas. This data will give us the opportunity to develop new management and protection measures.
