Description
A collation of datasets contributing to the MSFD baseline data for the current known distribution of non native species in the UK more

A list consisting of 24 non-indigenous species representing a range of taxa with varying current distributions was created for the final monitoring list. Data were requested from all the major holders of marine biodiversity data e.g. statutory agencies and major databases, the NBN, Local Record Centres (LRCs), schemes and societies, the Natural History Museum (NHM), Wildlife Trusts, and (MEDIN and other) Data Archive Centres (DACs), for the target species. In addition a thorough literature review was carried out and data extracted from published material, as well as pers comms with non-native species experts.
