Benthic Habitat Mapping in Cockburn Sound 2004

Detailed surveys were undertaken to accurately map the benthic coverage and assemblages of the Eastern Shelf, Cockburn Sound for summer 2004, using sidescan sonar and extensive groundtruthing. The priorities were to obtain additional information on the following: - Species assemblage (for example, distinguish between seagrass species, reef areas, wrack material, mussel beds); - Vegetation percentage cover; - Presence of epiphyte material; and - Habitat information for areas deeper than 10 m or with poor water clarity.

These results were presented in Report No. 321/1
