The EU recently revised the Marine Strategy Framework Directive (MSFD) decision to provide guidance on the methods to integrate biodiversity indicators for species (descriptor 1). ICES is being asked to review its previous advice in light of this revision. A judgement on a good environmental status for species diversity should use a process that integrates indicators per species, to species group to ecosystem component (birds, mammals, turtles, fish and cephalopods).
This workshop is being facilitated by ICES and is part of the EU MSFD central implementation strategy. Researchers especially from the ICES network and the EU WGGES network are invited to participate.
