Flemish Cap Dive 4

This dive has been designed in a grid design around a European Union survey trawl line run in the same area in 2007. The organisims in this EU trawl included large amounts of the sponge Geodiidae and a few large branching corals. On this transect we will investigate the fauna within and surrounding the approximate course of the trawl survey. Few taxonomic collections will be made during the dive, but the video and imagery taken during the dive will be analyzed in detail to associate biology with relative location in relation to the suspected trawl track.

The dive track and the 3D profile of the dive are provided below:
