I just saw the co-ords on the pic. So much for educated guesswork!

So anyway, I'd like to know the whys and wherefores. Those look like either bryozoans or possibly sponges on a Maerl/rock substrate. Wassup?

... We have been doing a video survey run of the seabed in the Alderney Race for the whole of 2009, the results are as you can see quite pretty but also quite surprising.

The effects on the environment down there are predictably turbulent, but the way species cope with that is quite something. None of the usual rules apply as the over riding influence is the movement of the water.

It is all about the tide, as the purpose of the survey is to form a baseline of data ahead of the rolling out of Alderney's tidal power development.
