Summary

VESSEL: NOAA R/V Fulmar

PROJECT DATES: May 7, 2007 – May 14, 2007

RATIONALE:
Cordell Bank National Marine Sanctuary (CBNMS) is best known for Cordell Bank, a high
relief rocky feature situated near the continental shelf break. However, Cordell Bank only
occupies approximately five percent of the total area of the Sanctuary. The remaining
habitat is primarily unconsolidated soft bottom. This cruise was undertaken to describe the
soft bottom biological communities and habitats of CBNMS. A video camera mounted to
an aluminum frame (camera sled) was towed behind the research vessel to provide images
of the bottom.
