Swallow Sand MCZ 2016 Survey Report (Version 3) 2020


The survey at Swallow Sand Marine Conservation Zone (MCZ) was carried out between 17 and 29 May 2016, on the RV Cefas Endeavour cruise CEND1016. The survey team for the duration of the fieldwork included Cefas marine ecologists, marine surveyors, habitat mappers and marine chemists along with a marine monitoring specialist from the JNCC.

The aim of the Swallow Sand MCZ survey was to gather the initial dataset of a site monitoring time-series, which will contribute information on the habitats found at this site to inform habitat-specific assessments.
