European legislation (Habitats Directive and Marine Strategy Framework Directive) requires monitoring of harbour porpoise (Phocoena phocoena) abundance and distribution, as well as changes thereof, in Dutch North Sea waters. The primary objective of the monitoring in The Netherlands is to report on the status of harbour porpoise in Dutch waters every six years, and determine a trend over 12 years.
