Surveys of benthic marine habitats encompassing 1814.7 ha and lining 90% of Dominica's shoreline were carried out to build the first composite picture of the distribution and size of the island's near-shore sublittoral habitats, and the epibenthic communities they harbor. Field survey sites covered areas ranging from 1425 to 29.6 ha, lining the shore in bands ranging between 50 and 250 m in width, in waters no deeper than 30 m. Thus a total of 755 ha of benthos were surveyed in October and… CONTINUE READING
