Marine Protected Area Monitoring in the Channel : a Review

Creator : David Rodríguez-Rodríguez, Siân Rees, Gerald Mannaerts, Emma Sheehan
Date : 05/03/2015

This report provides an overview of marine protected area (MPA) monitoring in the English Channel (the Channel). It uses an operational definition of MPAs by the OSPAR Convention that has been used throughout the PANACHE project.


It justifies the importance of monitoring MPAs soundly, regularly and systematically for effective conservation of biodiversity and related ecosystem services provided by these areas. It also shows the international and national policy and legal frameworks for MPA monitoring applicable to the Channel as well as existing marine and coastal monitoring schemes and programmes in the UK and France.


Finally, it provides a snapshot of MPA designation, management and monitoring status in the Channel by February 2014.
