microalgae were collected from approximately 1,000 g of surface 1-cm-depth sediments from four intertidal sites on mud and sandy flats on July 24, 2008, and July 26, 2008 (Fig.
Microfauna characteristics: The foraminiferal fauna is characterised by abundant calcareous benthic
species, dominated by Gavelinella, Ammobaculites, Praebulimna, Tritaxia and abundant Nodosariids.
vertebrate samples were randomly collected from each sampling station with cast net of 0.
However, in aquaculture there are few studies that employ biomonitoring with the use of benthic
There was a high degree of similarity between Slimy Sculpin diet and the composition of the benthic
community with peak feeding occurring during the mid-morning.
microalgae from tributaries and the main channel of the river (Table 2) consisted of thirty (30) genera belonging to five groups namely; Chlorophyceae (6), Euglenophyceae (2), Xanthophyceae (1), Bacillariophyceae (19) and Cyanophyceae (2).
It was recorded that the fauna present in the formation was mainly the larger benthic
foraminifera and their preservation was very good.
In these surveys we evaluated the cover of benthic
cyanobacteria using belt transects covering an area between 30 and 60 [m.
We anticipate that LARS4 will enable Benthic
to deliver services to our clients more efficiently and more reliably.

Debmarine said in a statement issued to the Economist, "The Benthic
Monitoring programme is an on-going research survey that uses a grab sampler to collect seabed sediment samples which are analysed to assess the state of the seabed communities.
foraminifera are single-celled marine protists that have historically been important indicators in ecological and geological marine research.
