Résumé

For the Aichi Biodiversity Targets to be met in full, and for the other relevant processes to be successful, examples and guidelines for the identification of important pelagic areas must be made available to policy makers involved in the EBSA identification process. Through a series of break-out groups and plenary discussions, in-depth guidelines were developed for specific criteria and over-arching general guidelines were articulated. Further, the workshop participants developed a typology of oceanographic features that might meet the EBSA criteria and specific examples of each type. The types are also accompanied by a description of how the features have been identified in scientific peer-reviewed literature. The participants in the workshop and the workshop organizers sincerely hope that the provision of these guidelines and examples will both encourage and help relevant organizations and agencies to include pelagic areas of ecological importance in their information gathering processes and management.
