The Protection of Marine European Protected Species from Injury and Disturbance

This guidance is intended to provide a resource for marine users, regulators, advisors and the enforcement authorities when considering whether an offence of deliberately disturbing or injuring/killing a marine European Protected Species is likely to occur or to have occurred as a result of an activity.

This is part of our Good Practice Guidance for Marine Mammals, produced by Claire Lacey, Jon Barnes and Patrick Lynes.
