A photoquadrat survey of the benthic community inside and outside the Lamlash Bay NTZ: are there signs of recovery?, Cross T.

The recovery of communities on the seabed in the Lamlash Bay NTZ were surveyed using a photo-quadrat diving method. Compared to less protected sites the NTZ had more solitary and colonial species, especially in sponges, hydroids, bryozoan and tunicates. More coralline red algae was also found in the NTZ.
