New MARINElife Survey Packs Launched

Seatruck survey 1

Along with the exciting launch of our new Data management system, we are also pleased this month to release the new and updated MARINElife survey packs for our researcher teams. These contain our new data recording forms, protocols, and data entry guidance.

Our researcher survey packs and guidance documents have been reviewed and updated to improve ease and efficiency of data collection and entry for our volunteers, while maintaining best practice methods and data quality standards.

As a Blue Planet Champion, we are also aiming to improve the consistency of our flotsam recording efforts, and have amended our Flotsam forms so this is easier and takes less time for surveyors.
