ObjectivesThe aim of the survey is to acquire sentinel monitoring (Type 1 monitoring) data to contribute to the development of a monitoring time-series for Pisces Reef Complex cSAC/SCI. The survey will gather evidence on the structure, function and condition of Annex I Reefs (both rocky and stony reefs), against which the rate and direction of change can be inferred in the long term. The primary objectives of the survey have been developed based on the feature attributes defined in the Conservation Objectives for the site (JNCC, 2012).
