Abstract

A multidisciplinary survey of the Bassurelle Sandbank Site of Community Interest was conducted in March 2013, aboard the RV Cefas Endeavour (CEND 03/13).

Summary

This survey of the Bassurelle Sandbank SCI was successful in acquiring new acoustic and ground-truthing data, which, in combination with existing historical datasets, has enabled the physical and benthic faunal characterisation of the sandbank feature and its immediate surroundings. The sandbank feature corresponds with the definition of an Annex I sandbank habitat feature.
