problematic: Status of deep-water habitats and species, and human impacts
description: The project entails research on deep-water marine habitats and species, and is leading to new records of fish and invertebrate species from the Maltese Islands, which is crucial for building an inventory of Maltese deep-water species to enable the formulation of management and conservation actions for such natural living resources. The research is ongoing and the related work is a continuation of analyses of data collected from the EU funded LIFE BaHAR project
