A hierarchical approach to mapping seabed habitat is presented. A provincial scale survey that included hydrography and geology provided the context for interpreting habitat use and vulnerability. A megascale map, developed in cooperation with local fishers, identified major seabed features (kilometres to 10s of kilometres). Vulnerability of a feature was defined as its resistance to physical modification and its resilience, or capacity to recover, on removal of the modifier. Vulnerability was… CONTINUE READING
