In 2001, we participated in a partnership study of the invertebrates and fish associated with sandbanks off the coast of Wales, from Conwy Bay (Bangor) in the north to Helwick Bank (Carmarthen Bay) in the south. The initial findings were published as CCW contract reports in 2003. The purpose of this project is to re-analyse the data from the separate accounts and produce an integrated scientific report. The report will be produced as part of our BIOMôR Report series with publication funding from CCW.
