BB13 - Trends in arrival of new non-indigenous species

FieldDescriptionValidated Entry
[Table title]Name of monitoring programmeTrends in arrival of new non-indigenous species
[ProgrammeDescription]Description of the monitoring programmeNIS are reported from academic surveys, citizen science, and national and regional monitoring. The monitoring covers both NIS-specific monitoring and monitoring of marine biodiversity in general. Information from these various sources are used to synthesise NIS-lists for each Contracating Party with information on location, taxonomy and in some instances abundance.
[OtherPoliciesConventions]Monitoring for other Union legislation or international agreements that contributes to the programme.OSP-CEMP
[Contracting Parties monitoring]

Which other countries are involved in practical implementation of this monitoring programme, and what is the degree of cooperation.

Agreed data collection methods
[Contracting Parties supplying data] BE, DE, DK, ES, FR, IE, NL, NO, PT, SE, UK
[Contracting Parties with an "opt out"]  
[Temporal scope]Start (and end) date of the programme.2003-9999
[Spatial scope]Spatial coverage of the programme according to the jurisdictional zones of marine waters.Coastal waters (WFD)
Territorial waters
EEZ (or similar, e.g. Contiguous Zone, Fishing Zone, Ecological Protection Zone)
Continental shelf (beyond EEZ)
[Aggregation of Data]At which scale can the data from the sub-programme be aggregated for environmental assessments?Subregion/unknown
[MarineReportingUnit]Area(s) where the programme takes place.marineSubregion

[Element Monitored] Biological feature: an inventory of the temporal occurrence, abundance and spatial distribution of nonindigenous, exotic species or, where relevant, genetically distinct forms of native species, which are present in the marine region or subregion
[Parameter Measured]Parameter(s) monitored.ABU
[Monitoring Guidelines/Monitoring Method in place]Guidelines/protocols describing the method for monitoring.OTH
[MonitoringMethodOther]Guidelines/protocols describing the method for monitoring.Varies between CPs, but in most cases will be based around existing biodiversity monitoring efforts
[Quality Assurance Procedures in Place]In addition to a specified method, is there any additional Quality Assurance used?Unknown, in most cases this will be based on the QAPs associated with the existing monitoring programme
[Quality Control]What type of Quality Control is used?Unknown but to include monitoring data QC
[Data submission Frequency (and deadline)]Frequency of the monitoringAnnually
[Applicable MSFD GES Criteria]Indicator(s) to which the programme contributes.D2C1
[Data Depository]Link to where monitoring data can be accessed (Art. 19(3)
