The survey at North East of Farnes Deep Marine Conservation Zone was carried out between 24 – 27 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 JNCC.

The aim of the survey was to gather the initial dataset of a site monitoring time-series, that will contribute information on the habitats found at this site to inform habitat specific assessments (e.g. under the Marine and Coastal Access Act, Marine Strategy Framework Directive).
