February 2021 Newsletter


You may remember back in November’s newsletter, we told you how two of our had been aboard this year’s Cefas PELTIC Survey. Well, the results of the 35-day survey have now been summarised in a new report from Cefas.

The report provides a look at the whats, whys, and hows of the survey, as well as information on the fish, oceanography, and plankton surveys.

When it comes to MARINElife’s contribution, 41 seabird species were recorded, with Gannet as the highest recorded species. Also, Fulmar, Great Black-backed, Lesser and Herring Gull, Kittiwake, Guillemot and Razorbill numbers were between three and five times higher than recorded in the previous three years.

For cetaceans, 214 cetacean encounters were had, totalling approximately 1,840 animals of 7 species. Short-beaked Common Dolphin lived up to their name and were the most frequently recorded species.

You can read the report in its entirety over on our website.
