Description
Survey to establish the location and assess the extent, distribution and species composition of maerl bed habitats and quantify the abundance of associated epifauna communities in Falmouth Harbour, UK using a high definition towed underwater video system. Surveys were conducted in response to proposed dredging activities to deepen the shipping channel. The surveys took place in February 2012 and transects were approximately 200 x 0.5 metres. more
