Composition, Environmental Fates and Biological Effect of Water Based Drilling Muds and Cuttings Discharged to Marine Environment – A Synthesis and Annotated Bibliography
This publication examines recent experimental studies of the impact of towed fishing gears, such as trawls and scallop dredges, on benthic habitats and communities (organisms that live at or near the bottom of the sea). The review gives a critical evaluation of the methodological limitations of impact studies, given the complexity and natural variability of benthic communities.
