Species Descriptions

Species descriptions for three groups of marine taxa are included in the pdf document available for download below. The three groups include selected molluscs, echinoderms and benthic fish species. The species list is not extensive given that dive time would have already been devoted to conducting marine debris surveys.


Unless there is little debris to record and collect it is unlikely that divers will have the time necessary to conduct the add-ons protocol. However, if 4 buddy pairs are involved in the assessment of a site using the standard debris protocol, i.e. using the four replicate belt transects, then it is enviaged that the 'debris add-on' surveys would be achievable.
