Description 
Summary

Multibeam echosounder data and seabed sampling data acquired during the INFOMAR national seabed mapping programme were the primary sources of data used in the generation of this habitat map for the Inshore Fisheries section of Bord Iascaigh Mhara. The original sediment classes assigned to the data were translated to the EUNIS habitat classification system as part of the MESH Atlantic project.
