Quality control

Data have been recorded in situ by volunteer scuba divers trained in Seasearch survey techniques and using common survey protocols. The four species covered can be identified with a high level of confidence in situ by trained divers. It should be noted that these species, along with a large number of others, are also recorded in the Seasearch Marine Surveys dataset also on the Gateway. This dataset only includes records from the focused Pink Sea Fan surveys and both sources should be used for a full picture of distribution of all four species.

Method Steps

  1. Data has been obtained from visual observations by SCUBA divers.
