Date: 
27 June, 2016 - 20 August, 2016
Location: 
North Sea

The objective of North Sea expedition is to carry out initial, exploratory research to document species, habitats and communities in selected areas within the waters of four countries.

This will enable Oceana to identify important or vulnerable ecosystems where more in-depth surveys will be conducted in the future.

Oceana's ultimate aim is to pinpoint those areas most in need of protection, which will potentially contribute to enlarging and completing the network of marine protected areas in the North Sea.
