The survey of the marine environment of Falmouth Bay and the lower Fal Ruan Estuary was undertaken as part of the BioMar Project which is funded by the European Community through the LIFE Programme. In July 1994 a baseline survey was done to map the distribution of dead and living maerl. The survey was done using a RoxAnn acoustic system supported by direct observation of the seabed using a drop-down video camera and sediment samples collected by grab. Maps of bathymetry and predicted distribution of biotopes were prepared using GIS.
