    The survey at South of the Isles of Scilly (SISS1) recommended Marine Conservation Zone (rMCZ) was carried out on board the Research Vessel Cefas Endeavour (Cruise code CEND0613) between the 21st and 23rd May 2013. The survey team for the duration of the fieldwork included marine scientists and surveyors from the Centre for Environment, Fisheries and Aquaculture Science (Cefas) and marine scientists from the Joint Nature Conservation Committee (JNCC). The main aim of the survey at the SISS rMCZ was to achieve 100% acoustic coverage using the Multi-Beam Echo-Sounder (MBES) and complete a ground truthing survey using both sediment grabs and seabed imagery in order to verify the presence of those BSH encountered.
