Abstract

 

Three sites were selected for survey during CEND1116: North Norfolk Sandbanks and Saturn Reef (NNSSR); Inner Dowsing, Race Bank and North Ridge (IDRBNR); and Haisborough, Hammond and Winterton (HHW) candidate Special Areas of Conservation/ Sites of Community Importance (cSAC/SCI).

The RV Cefas Endeavour survey focused on the North Norfolk Sandbanks and Saturn Reef cSAC/SCI which is located in the southern North Sea, extending from about 40km off the north-east coast of Norfolk. This cSAC/SCI encloses a series of ten main sandbanks (Leman, Inner, Ower, Well, Broken, Swarte and four sandbanks collectively known as the Indefatigables) and associated fragmented smaller banks, which represent the most extensive example of the offshore linear ridge sandbank feature in UK waters.
