Bioregions, of course, are just one of the important data layers in indentifying an ecologically representative system of marine protected areas.

In addition, socio-economic and cultural considerations are vital in the spatial planning process. This report is focussed upon one important, but only one, input to marine spatial planning: the development of marine bioregions.
