Seabed Surveys 2019

Home > Projects > Seabed Surveys

Marine Scotland and SNH are planning seabed surveys, this June, of areas in Argyll including the Sound of Jura and Loch Sween. 

They will use a drop-down video camera to search for Priority Marine Feature species and habitats that are at risk from fishing methods that make contact with the seabed. These include northern sea fan and sponge communities, horse mussel beds, maerl beds, seagrass meadows and flame shell beds.

The Sound of Jura is home to some of the most fascinating and diverse marine life in Scotland.  We seek to protect the Sound, the River Add and their local users from threats to the area’s wildlife and local sustainable economy.
