Project Summary:
Though the use of innovative methodologies, this project will fill critical knowledge gaps on Bermuda’s mobile deep-sea biodiversity and support both the Bermuda and UK Government’s strategic biodiversity conservation priorities. The complimentary use of environmental DNA metabarcoding and baited cameras will generate baseline data to feed into the nascent MPA network as the Government develops spatial protection measures under the Bermuda Ocean Prosperity Programme (BOPP). This work will focus on species of highly migratory and mobile predatory fishes.
