The surveys at the North Norfolk Sandbanks and Saturn Reef Site of Community Interest were carried out between 4 and 25 November 2013 on the RV Cefas Endeavour.

The aim of surveys CEND 22/13 and CEND 23/13 was to gather additional seabed data to assist with the development of management advice. The survey was split in two parts, Part 1 (4–11 November 2013 – CEND 22/13) included a training element for JNCC staff, and the survey team therefore included a large number of JNCC staff. The survey team for part 2 (12–25 November 2013 – CEND 23/13) was focussed on science objectives and included Cefas marine ecologists, habitat mappers and survey technicians along with three representatives from JNCC.
