Description

The Institute of Estuarine and Coastal Studies was commissioned by Environmental Resources Management (ERM), on behalf of the developer (E.ON UK Renewables), to carry out an evaluation of the marine ecology present, both within the immediate development site, and in adjacent waters. The assessment aimed to investigate the subtidal invertebrate assemblage, both infaunal and epifaunal, the intertidal infaunal assemblages (at the cable landfall), the composition of the fish communities, their spawning potential and the juvenile component. The following surveys were carried out:
Subtidal macrofaunal sampling, including sediment analysis (December 2004); Intertidal macrofaunal sampling and sediment analysis (April 2005); Epifaunal trawling (October 2004); Fish surveys carried out in November 2004 and March 2005 to account for seasonal variation (due to migration, spawning and recruitment) in the structure and species composition of the fish communities. Characterisation of Sabellaria species at specific sites where presence was highlighted by the macrofaunal and epifaunal surveys.
