Abstract

JNCC and Marine Scotland Science (MSS) undertook an offshore seabed survey of East of Gannet and Montrose Fields (EGM) and Norwegian Boundary Sediment Plain (NSP) Scottish Nature Conservation Marine Protected Areas on the Marine Research Vessel Scotia (survey code 1515S) between 19 October 2015 and 2 November 2015.

The aim of survey 1515S was to gather the initial dataset of a site monitoring time-series for East of Gannet and Montrose Fields, and Norwegian Boundary Sediment Plain, NCMPAs. The data collected will be used to inform appropriate future monitoring at these sites to enable assessment of change (e.g. in distribution, extent and/or condition of features) and to contribute information on the habitats found at these sites for more general habitat-specific assessments (e.g. under the Marine Strategy Framework Directive).
