About MarLIN

'The Marine Life Information Network - MarLIN' is an initiative of the Marine Biological Association of the UK (MBA). MarLIN pioneered the use of the Web for the dissemination of quality assured information on the marine biodiversity of the coasts and seas of the British Isles.

MarLIN provides information to support marine environmental management, conservation, and planning. Our resources are based on available scientific evidence and designed for all stakeholders, from government agencies and industry to naturalists and the public. MarLIN hosts the largest review of the effects of human activities and natural events on marine species and habitats yet undertaken, in the form of extensive 'sensitivity' reviews.
