LIFE Recreation - ReMEDIES River Medina and Osborne Bay, Isle of Wight Subtidal Seagrass Surveys 2020 (NECR372)

In 2020, Natural England commissioned the Environment Agency to undertake a survey to monitor the extent and density of seagrass beds in Osborne Bay and River Medina on the Isle of Wight.

This work was funded as part of the LIFE Recreation ReMEDIES project (LIFE18 NAT/UK/000039) and contributes to Action D1 – monitoring by conducting echosounder and drop down video surveys to provide a baseline for future monitoring of the ReMEDIES project. This funding was supplemented by funding from Environment Agency to allow a wider area to be surveyed, the areas shown in this report as lying outside of Solent Maritime Special Area of Conservation (SAC), so that an accurate picture of the entire seagrass bed could be obtained which, whilst outside of the scope of LIFE ReMEDIES, will ultimately be beneficial for the project.
