The deployment of telemetry tags on UK seals is patchy both in space and time. The data-sparse regions around the UK were identified. This will allow future targeted regional deployments of
telemetry tags to improve in the synoptic usage maps produced under MR5.1.1.

The criteria for classifying regions as data sparse were defined as:
- No telemetry data have been collected; or
- The underlying population of seals are known to have recently increased significantly, and although telemetry data exist, there is a strong possibility that at-sea distribution may have changed.
- Existing telemetry data is over 10 years old and sample size of telemetry data is unrepresentative of the seal population in an area.

Based on these criteria, recommendations were made about where future tagging effort should be directed.
