Potential Annex I Reefs in UK waters


The map shows areas of potential Annex I reef in UK waters. These are areas where the Statutory Nature Conservation Bodies believe, from the best available evidence, that Annex I reef might be present. Through offshore survey, JNCC is working to confirm the presence of Annex I reef in offshore waters. For information on the identification of Annex I reef SACs within 12 nautical miles of the coast, please contact the relevant country conservation agency.
