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.
