ObjectivesSurvey Work Remaining from CEND 25/14: Remaining survey work may be carried out during CEND01/15. This comprises a small block of MBES at Cape Bank along with approximately 15 GT stations (DC and HG). It is estimated that completion of this work will require approximately 3 days of survey. Completion of the GT survey will also be carried out at the northern IoS iVMS site (DC and HG). It is estimated that this will require approximately 2 days of survey time.

Fishing pressure survey: Indicator (IQI) testing and calibration study (proposed approach). Location of the survey will be west of Lundy. The objective of this element of the survey is to design an experimental approach to test and calibrate the Infaunal Quality Index (IQI) indicator. The proposed design will be in one of the highlighted (in blue) cells. The design will include eight 500m2 survey boxes, four reference boxes and 4 treatment boxes.
