survey methods, data collections, and species observations /

This report reviews the history of Cobb Seamount and describes the methodology and data collected during a scientific survey of Cobb Seamount (46° 44′ 24″ N, 130° 48′ 0″ W) led jointly by Fisheries and Oceans Canada (DFO) and the United States National Oceanographic and Atmospheric Agency (NOAA) from 21-26 July 2012 (DFO Science Cruise Number PAC 2012-43). The survey objectives were to collect data to: (a) characterize the benthic community structure; (b) map the distribution of vulnerable marine ecosystem (VME) indicators taxa (e.g. corals, sponges, and other structure-forming species); and (c) document any evidence of lost fishing gear and its observable impacts.
