Abstract
    This report provides full documentation of the new proposals for EUNIS habitats up to level 5 for marine habitats found under the MeshAtlantic project. Three case studies were presented in detail, the Algarve region and the Southwestern Coast in Portugal and the Basque Country in Spain, plus other contributions from Brittany (France). Overall, there were 45 new habitat proposals. This represents a contribution to a comprehensive typology for the marine habitats of the European Atlantic coast.
