Field Activity 2000-005-FA

Identifier 2000-005-FA
Alternate names IB O-5-00-GM
Purpose Sidescan mapping and seismic profiling of shelf-edge reserves for habitat and paleoshoreline studies.
Location Northeastern Gulf of Mexico, United States, North America, North Atlantic;
Summary The U.S. Geological Survey (USGS) mapped approximately 22 square miles of the Madison Swanson Marine Protected Area (MPA) and Steamboat Lumps MPA, which are located on the Florida shelf edge in the northeastern Gulf of Mexico in 2000 using sidescan sonar and high-resolution chirp seismic-reflection systems. This survey was conducted as part of a larger study of the effectiveness of no-fishing reserves in protecting grouper spawning aggregations.
Info derived Subbottom data, sidescan sonar, and navigation
