This report was commissioned in order to assess the sensitivity of highly mobile marine species to a range of anthropogenic pressures. Having a robust, repeatable and transparent method in place for determining feature sensitivity facilitates consistency and transparency regarding the application of the evidence base when providing advice on operations. This study, in addition to other sensitivity work on marine habitats and our understanding of how pressures are related to differing marine operations will allow marine stakeholders to assess and manage the environmental impacts of proposed developments.
