Sediment Health Check

Sediment Health Check

In response to current and proposed changes to SEPA procedures and increasing penalties imposed on sites for non-compliance, we now offer seabed health-checks which provide a fast, lower cost, tailored benthic survey designed to determine and subsequently monitor seabed condition.

These are carried out at strategic points throughout the production cycle and fallow period providing an early warning system to flag up where remediation may be necessary and to determine mitigation strategies.

Sediment health checks enable: 

  • Detection of potential issues at an early stage in the production cycle providing mitigation time prior to peak biomass sampling
  • Location of viable sampling stations/ transect alternatives where there have been issues sampling MPS transects
  • Monitoring of seabed recovery between cycles and detection of any incremental changes
