Abstract

In 2012 Marine EcoSol analysed imagery from three Scottish offshore surveys undertaken by JNCC and Marine Scotland Science (MSS) staff in 2011, in order to locate Priority Marine Features (PMFs) in Scottish waters. The three surveys analysed were: the 2011 MSS IBTSQ3 survey (IBTSQ3), the 2011 1111s FRV Scotia Rona-Windsock survey and the 2011 MSS Rockall survey (Rockall). Both towed video data and still image data from all of the surveys was analysed, except for the Rockall survey which had no stills associated with it. This report was prepared from analysis conducted in 2012.

Within each of the survey areas, Annex 1 reef features, MPA search features, species and habitats of conservation importance were highlighted and all biotopes recorded. Where the data didn’t fit with current biotopes, new biotopes were suggested.
