Pilot Assessment of Marine Bird Habitat Quality
The human maritime activities shipping and offshore wind farming negatively affect marine birds wintering at sea in the south of the Greater North Sea (OSPAR Region II), whereas no negative effect of bottom-trawling fishery was found in the species examined. This pilot assessment helps to identify causes for decline in marine birds and to direct conservation measures appropriately.
