Titan Environmental Surveys
Swansea Bay benthic survey
In conjunction with Titan Environmental Surveys, AER Ltd were able to conduct epibenthos surveys using a 2 metre beam trawl. Species were identified on board and in laboratory, and a database completed for Titan. The survey work contributed to the baseline survey for the site characterisation of Swansea Bay for Tidal Lagoon Swansea Bay.
