Summary
Abstract: The benthic invertebrate, plant, mobile invertebrate and fish biodiversity of the 200,000 kmĀ² area of the GBR shelf seabed was sampled by a 200 m tow of a 1.5 m epibenthic sled at 1191 sites, and a 1 km tow of a 8 fthm otter trawl (single high-flying Florida Flyer) at 458 sites, representing a full range of known physical environments, during six 1-month-long voyages on the AIMS vessel Lady Basten ...

Quality Quality of specimen identification varies depending on the state of taxonomic review of various groups. Where expertise, reference material and documentation were available, species (or OTU) identifications are generally reliable (eg. Fishes, Crustacea, Mollusca, Porifera), some groups have intermediate identification reliability (generally to genus: Echinodermata, some Cnidaria, Bryozoa), whereas a few groups had limited depth of identification (eg. Annelida, Ascidiacea, Hydroidea, Crinoidea).
Access Constraints Species ID, location, date-time and depth data are freely available via OBIS. Ancillary data is currently restricted to the custodian, not for public release at this time in this form.
