In 2012, seabed imagery from the Hebrides Terrace Seamount was captured on behalf of JNCC by researchers from Heriot-Watt University on the JC073 survey. Three transects were undertaken over two days, one on the summit and two on the eastern slopes. This report outlines the results of the taxonomic analysis of fauna and characterisation of the habitat sampled by these three transects. The data presented here also provide information on the presence and potential extent of Scottish Marine Protected Area search features and Priority Marine Features.
