ObjectivesTo develop methodologies to measure the immediate physical, ecological and environmental impact of trawling. In particular we will measure:
a) the penetration depth of the trawl doors, sweeps and ground gear;
b) the immediate ecological impact caused by the trawl doors, sweeps and ground gear on benthic invertebrate communities;
c) the particle size, nutrient (CHN) and cyst data in the sediment plumes put into suspension behind the trawl doors, sweeps and ground gear.
