Benthic bycatch from dredge surveys for seed mussel (Mytilus edilus) stock assessment, Outer Ards, Northern Ireland

This dataset contains presence/absence information of infaunal bycatch from seed mussel stock (Mytilus edulis) assessment surveys off the Outer Ards Peninsula in Northern Ireland. The seed mussel survey is carried out each year and these surveys were carried out between 2017-02-21 and 2018-07-18. The dredge samples are taken from the DAERA Fisheries Protection Vessel Queen of Ulster (formally Banríon Uladh). The main aim of the seed mussel survey is to carry out a stock assessment...

Infaunal abundances from mud samples taken from the Outer Ards penninsula (Northern Ireland) in 2014 and 2016 as part of an assessment of the Modiolus modiolus reefs.

This dataset contains information on infaunal abundance and biomass from sediment grabs taken off the coast of the Ards Penninsula, Northern Ireland in 2014 and 2016. This survey was carried out to contribute to a larger project to assess the status and extent of Modiolus modiolus biogenic reefs in this area. The biogenic reefs were in an unfavourable condition even though this Annex 1 habitat was the reason for the designation of the Strangford Lough...

Infaunal abundance & biomass from sediment grabs in Belfast Lough as part of a habitat mapping project in 2018

This dataset contains information on infaunal abundance & biomass from sediment grabs in Belfast Lough as part of a larger & ongoing habitat mapping project. The sediment & infaunal survey was carried out in January 2018 by AFBI and this dataset was integrated into the larger mapping project since 2012. The project is joint with the British Geological Society and Belfast Harbour with the aim of mapping the seabed floor and updating it from more...

Infaunal abundance and biomass data from surveys of the East Antrim Maerl bed in 2004

This dataset contains information on infaunal abundance and biomass from sediment grabs in Red Bay, Co. Antrim in 2004 on the RV Lough Foyle. The data from this survey was used to help support the Special Area of Conservation (SAC) site designation for Red Bay, Co. Antrim. A day grab was used to collect the samples, in total there were 20 samples taken and analysed. Particle Size Analysis (PSA) and Carbon & Nitrogen analysis was...

2013 University of Plymouth Flamborough Head (UK) Special Area of Conservation (SAC) towed underwater video condition assessment of epibenthic communities and biotopes

Emma Sheehan
This data set comprises of marine epibenthos (approx. 70 identified taxa derived from Algae, Annelida, Arthropoda, Bryozoa, Chordata, Cnidaria, Echinodermata, Mollusca, Porifera) data collected in June 2013 from Flamborough Head (UK) Special Area of Conservation (SAC). Data were collected using a high definition towed underwater video system . Three replicate 200 m x 0.5 m transects were recorded in each of 14 areas. Locations of transects were selected based on previous surveys. The extent and...

Emma Sheehan
This data set comprises of marine epibenthos (approx. 57 identified taxa derived of Algae, Annelida, Arthropoda, Bryozoa, Chordata, Cnidaria, Echinodermata, Mollusca, Porifera) collected in July 2013 from Thanet Coast (UK) Special Area of Conservation (SAC) using a high definition towed underwater video system. Three replicate 200 m x 0.5 m transects were recorded in each area 12 areas. The extent and condition of biotopes was also identified and mapped.

2010 University of Plymouth Guernsey towed underwater video benthic survey

Emma Sheehan
This data set comprises of marine epibenthos (approx. 74 identified taxa derived from Algae, Annelida, Arthropoda, Bryozoa, Chordata, Cnidaria, Echinodermata, Mollusca, Porifera) collected during September 2010 from the Big Russel channel in Guernsey, Channel Islands, UK. Surveys were appointed as part of a Regional Environmental Assessment to determine the feasibility of marine renewable energy developments in the area. Data were collected using a high definition towed underwater video system. 36 transects each approximately 200 x...

2012 University of Plymouth Jersey towed underwater video Epifauna survey

Emma Sheehan
This dataset comprises marine epibenthos (approx. 26 identified taxa derived of Algae, Annelida, Arthropoda, Bryozoa, Chordata, Cnidaria, Echinodermata, Mollusca, Nemertea, Porifera) and associated habitat data (percentage cover maerl, sand, reef and shell) collected during August 2012 as part of an investigation to identify and map maerl beds off the east coast of Jersey, Channel Islands, UK. 47 transects were undertaken using a towed high definition video camera, each transect being approximately 200 x 0.5 metres.

2016 Scottish Natural Heritage (SNH) Sound of Barra underwater video and benthic infaunal grab survey

This work consisted of 35 quantitative drop-down video drift survey sites and 72 infaunal grab samples and granulometry samples for Particle Size Analysis. This was targeted to 9 sampling boxes located within and outside the eastern side of the Sound of Barra SAC. Digital still photographs were taken at intervals of the video survey to enable description of seabed structure and species assemblages. The main aims of this investigation were to: (1) improve knowledge of...
