Testing of Temporal Monitoring Techniques for Benthic Habitat Impacts of Tidal Energy Developments

This project tested and developed monitoring procedures for assessing the impact of the placement of in-stream tidal devices (e.g. turbines, cables and other seafloor hardware) on the seafloor environment. The project collected test data over case study sites in the Bay of Fundy using high-resolution acoustic survey techniques and benthic biological sampling methods.
