Can you help?

The SMMR MSPACE project team are looking for infauna and/or epifauna biomass data to carry out a benthic habitat condition assessment for bottom fishing  in the UK EEZ. Data from anywhere inside the UK EEZ is welcome, they are particularly lacking data for the west and north of Scotland. If you have done benthic surveys and collected species-, genus-, family-level biomass data for infauna or epibenthic invertebrate species and happy to share data, then please get in touch with Marija Sciberras ( at Heriot-Watt University.
