Abstract In order to protect biodiversity, OSPAR has defined a list of ‘threatened and declining species and habitats’ that are in need of protection. This list is based upon nominations of species and habitats that were considered priorities for protection by Contracting Parties and observers to the Commission. In the past few years, for a number of species and habitats OSPAR recommendation have been adopted. Since the Dutch government has the obligation to take measures in accordance with the recommendations, an overview of the present occurrence, monitoring and measures was needed. In this report we provide summary sheets per species or habitat type, in which the distribution and trends of each species in the Dutch part of the OSPAR area is shown.
