1. This film was created as a teacher resource for a KS3 and KS4 Biology lesson called "What animals live on the seafloor?".

    Bryony Pearce, Marine ecologist at Marine Ecological Surveys (MES) explains what benthic macrofauna are and why they were studied during scientific research into the ecology of the Humber, off the east coast of the United Kingdom.

    In 2008, the Marine Aggregate Levy Sustainability Fund (MALSF) commissioned Regional Environmental Characterisation (REC) research into four main dredging regions in the United Kingdom -- the Thames, South Coast, East Coast and Humber. These studies involved experts from universities, survey companies and heritage organisations investigating the archaeology, geology and ecology of the seafloor. The aim of the studies was to ensure that we use the sea sustainably, without damaging its natural or physical heritage.

    This film was produced by Wessex Archaeology as part of the Explore the Seafloor project, funded by MALSF to promote the results of the RECs.
