Manchester Ocean bottom survey
Today we carried out a video survey of planting areas in Manchester. We started in our first target area that satellite images indicate boat scarring and eelgrass loss. We hit the area quite close- right along the edge of the meadow. From pictures we could see how sparse the eelgrass is. One of the pictures show significant epiphyte growth. We went to our second target site and discovered that the meadow has rebounded well. Pictures indicate a very dense growth of the meadow. We will be going out to survey a couple other scar marks indicated by satellite images.
