Project

Restoration of marine boulder reefs -- addressing the single large or several small (SLOSS) debate in relation to marine habitat restoration

Publisher

Supervisor

Location

Greater Copenhagen area

Aim:

The aim is to identify types of restored boulder reefs that maximize fish abundance and diversity. Specifically, the project will compare fish abundance and diversity in two types of restored boulder reefs: 1) a single large boulder reef, and 2) several small boulder reefs. Equivalent amounts of boulders are used for the two reef designs. It is hypothesized that several small boulder reefs host the highest fish abundance and diversity per unit boulder.

Background:

Human impact on marine habitats is a global problem, particularly in Northwestern Europe, East Asia, North America; and the Mediterranean and East Caribbean Seas. Approximately 85% of the European coastlines are degraded. In Denmark, large quantities of boulders have been extracted from coastal zones to provide building material for constructions, including piers and jetties. The extraction of marine boulders ceased in 2010; and boulder reefs are now being restored to meet the requirements of the EU Habitat Directive. However, boulder reefs can be constructed in many different ways, and the optimal construction type for fish abundance and diversity is not known.   

Content:

Restored boulder reefs will be examined using underwater cameras, and then fish abundance and fish diversity on each reef will be quantified using video analyses. Field work has been carried out during the spring and summer of 2016 and 2018, and sites will be revisited in 2020, where students have the opportunity to participate. The study provides data to identify the optimal type of restored boulder reef. These data will provide guidelines for future restoration projects aimed at improving fish abundance and fish diversity. Further information is available here and here.

Duration:

Data collection will take 2-4 months over the summer of 2020, followed by 2-4 months of video analyses. Statistics and writing up will take another 1-4 months.
