SMMNR Constraint Mapping

Welsh Government

Key ecological constraints relevant to the development of aquaculture, tidal stream energy, and wave energy were mapped as part of the European Maritime and Fisheries Fund funded Sustainable Management of Marine Natural Resources (SMMNR) project. These data layers represent high-level relative constraints in relation to seabirds, fish, marine mammals and marine habitats, for different technology or activity types. A 1km2 hex grid has been used which covers the whole of Welsh waters. Each grid cell contains the sum of the relative constraint scores. Full details of the methodology and scoring approach are available within the “Ecological Constraints and Opportunities” report to Welsh Government (ABPmer, 2020). The relative constraint shown is indicative and does not indicate suitability or otherwise for developments.
