Marine Monitoring Method Finder

The Marine Monitoring Method Finder brings together a wide range of monitoring guidelines and procedures, and makes them readily available for use via a search bar and spreadsheet tool. These guidelines and procedures represent standards and advice recognised by JNCC. Where gaps exist in this knowledge, JNCC is developing revisions to fill these gaps.

All guidelines and procedures are published by government agencies, expert panels, collaborative working groups, international standards groups and universities. The vast majority have been reviewed by multiple government agencies and industry experts.

The MMMF Search Bar and Spreadsheet

The Marine Monitoring Method Search Bar is a search engine designed for people who want to quickly find methodological guidelines, recommendations and standards for monitoring marine habitats and species in the UK. It is similar to a standard internet search, but it only searches web pages which have been pre-selected to take you to the most useful sources.  It will not completely exclude irrelevant ‘hits’, but we hope it will guide you more quickly to the best management guidance.  It only finds information which has been published online – papers and books are not covered.


You can download the spreadsheet which contains the information within the MMMF from our Resource Hub.


Please note that the Marine Monitoring Method Finder was last updated in 2017, prior to the launch of JNCC's new website. Whilst every effort has been made to redirect material to the relevant content on the new website, some of the links may no longer work. It will be updated in due course to reflect the new content.
