This is a report to Natural England (NE) about the distribution of seabed habitats in the Cromer Shoal Chalk Beds Marine Conservation Zone (CSCB MCZ) and their taxonomic composition. It uses biological records collected since 2005, which are held and curated by Seasearch. This project uses Seasearch data and local knowledge for the spatial extent of CSCB MCZ to improve the understanding in three areas: spatial distributions of habitats and structural features; taxonomic diversity and presence of associations between species and structural features.
