  • The survey of the marine environment in the Sound of Arisaig proposed SAC was undertaken by the BioMar Project, at the University of Newcastle, under contract to SNH. The Sound of Arisaig has an unusually high diversity of sublittoral sediment habitats within a relatively small area, and has rich maerl beds. This study was to map the pSAC and undertake further detailed studies of the maerl beds. Acoustic techniques were used validated by biological sampling using towed video and scuba divers. The data was stored and analysed using GIS.

  • SNH commissioned the BioMar project to map the distribution of biotopes and lifeforms in the Sound of Arisaig pSAC, and in addition, undertake further detailed studies of the maerl beds within the site. Video and grab samples were collected, and 12 sites surveyed in detail by diving to collect samples for maerl analysis and characterisation of the biotopes associated with the maerl. 23 biotopes were identified from the video samples and by the MNCR sealochs survey. A map of the predicted biotope distribution based on the acoustic characteristics of the sea bed was prepared for the survey area.
