Dtaset within the framework of the SNIMar project, which consists of the georeferencing of a set of sites on the Coast of Mainland Portugal where seabird and aquatic birds can be observed.
This dataset was prepared under the Sectoral Plan of Natura 2000, corresponding to the level 3 of the natural habitats of comunity interest listed in Annex I of the Habitats Directive. This dataset only concernes to the marine and coastal habitats.
Areas which, through scientific criteria, have been identified as important for the healthy functioning ecologically and biologically of oceans and the services that they provide.
This layer provides geographic information related to a predictive distribution modelling for the demersal fish specie Phycis phycis (Forkbeard) in the Azorean sea.
This layer provides geographic information related to a predictive distribution modelling for cold-water coral genus Callogorgia in the Azorean sea.
The atlas of breeding birds in Portugal provide information about distribution at certain moment in breeding species in mainland Portugal. In the cases where it is possible also characterize the abundance of national populations of these species. In the present CDG, the data relate only to marine and coastal birds.
Delimitation and classification of coastal and estuarine-lagoon areas of molluscs and bivalve production located in the mainland published by Diário da República (the Portuguese Official Gazette) Nº. 78/2015, 2nd series of 2015-04-22, Order Nº. 4022/2015. To check the status of classification and / or the most current bans associated with the areas it is recommended to consult the IPMA page dedicated to the matter from 'http://www.ipma.pt/en/pescas/bivalves'.
This dataset refers to the wild bird species, identifying the species and their distribution, that causes specific attention under the PSRN2000. Noteworthy are (i) the globally threatened species; (Ii) threatened species at European level and whose distribution is confined to Europe; (Iii) those who, being threatened in Europe but having a wider distribution, have unfavorable laws in Portugal, and (iv) all species with threatened status in Portugal and which are included in Annex I of the Birds Directive. In this case it was considered only the aquatic and marine birds belonging to special protection areas (SPAs) marine, estuarine and coastal waters.
This layer provides geographic information related to a predictive distribution modelling for cold-water coral genus Lytocarpia in the Azorean sea.
This layer provides geographic information related to the survey points in the Azores of the demersal fish specie Beryx decadactylus.
