Project Title: Benthic Assessment for Deepwater Derelict Fishing Gear in the Monterey Bay National Marine Sanctuary - 2008 Funding Year: 2008 State/Territory Coverage: California
Project Abstract

Building on previous quantitative surveys (150 underwater video dives conducted from a submersible during 1992-2004 off southern and central California), this project aimed to quantify the distribution, abundance, type, and potential impacts of debris items found in a variety of benthic habitats within the Monterey Bay National Marine Sanctuary (MBNMS). The efforts advance our understanding of debris impacts and the persistence or transformation of debris over time within the Monterey Bay National Marine Sanctuary (MBNMS), and will be integrated into an existing web-based database of debris and habitat information. Project leads analyzed a subset of eighty-two of the original 150 surveys that occurred within the MBNMS along with additional (96) surveys funded by the California Ocean Protection Council in Fall of 2007.
