Extract of the publicly available offshore UK marine benthic data holdings of JNCC (Joint Nature Conservation Committee), held within the “Marine Recorder” data management system. Data comprises multi-thematic benthic surveys in the offshore, including both taxa occurrence and abundance alongside physical and biotope recordings. This dataset is being used as a pilot study into submitting fully classified biotope data into OBIS alongside associated taxonomic occurrences under the EU EMODnet initiative.
