Abstract

This report presents data collected during a survey of Central Fladen NCMPA, in March 2014 aboard the RV Cefas Endeavour

Summary

This report summarises the data collected during a survey which focused, in part, on the Central Fladen Nature Conservation Marine Protected Area (NCMPA). Evidence was gathered to support the development of monitoring options at the Central Fladen NCMPA and also, more generally, for offshore mud habitats. Seabed imagery and sediment samples were collected to assess benthic fauna assemblages within and surrounding a management scenario and also from areas along a gradient of abrasion pressure (calculated through analysis of VMS data).
