The VME DataBase is currently up-to-date. Information on VMEs can be viewed by year (2006-2015) or by region (or regional body). The VME DataBase is a mapping interface supported by factsheets that are entered through pop-ups. This is a superb source of information on VMEs and shows the tremendous efforts that have been made over the past 10 years to make fisheries more sustainable by safeguarding critical benthic habitats and thus maintaining healthy ecosystems.
