Achill Bay Sediment Sampling Report


The Coastal Sediment Project was funded by the European Maritime Fisheries Fund (EMFF) and led by INFOMAR to conduct sediment sampling and environmental data collection surveys on areas of interest in Ireland’s coastal waters to develop high resolution sediment maps, create habitat maps and support ancillary EMFF projects coordinated by the Marine Institute. The Marine Biodiversity Scheme is established under Union Priority 1 (Sustainable Fisheries) and Union Priority 6 (Integrated Maritime Policy) of Ireland's Operational Programme (OP) under the EMFF and is co-funded by the Irish Government and the EU.
