Top Categories:

Epifauna and Fish

Description

The survey was carried out by CMACS - Centre for Marine & Coastal Studies in autumn 2010 on behalf of CERI (now Celtic Array). This autumn 2010 survey provides the first set of annual 4m beam trawl survey data designed to sample demersal fish and epifauna present in and around the Irish Sea Round 3 Development Zone. There will be a second survey which is scheduled for spring 2011. After this second survey comparisons between the two data sets will be made and the definitive community descriptions will be provided. In addition, comparisons to Cefas data sets for their survey sites located within the zone will be undertaken and information regarding fish spawning areas will be provided following a literature review.
