Description

The benthic survey programme, developed by CMACS and approved by the Licence Authority, comprises grab survey (to sample infauna and sediment, reported separately) and 2m beam trawl to sample epifaunal invertebrates and small demersal fish, which is reported here. The programme commenced with baseline (pre-construction) surveys in autumn 2005. The report in this series presents the results of monitoring carried out in autumn 2009, more than two years after completion of major construction activities, and considers results of all four surveys (baseline, during construction and two post-construction) in relation to the potential effects of wind farm construction and operation on benthic environmental receptors.
