Materials needed to conduct an AGRRA benthos survey can be found under the Related Links. The method is summarized in the Benthos Protocol [we suggest printing a copy for handy reference]. The Benthos Underwater Datasheet and Underwater Codes should be printed on underwater paper [see Protocol document for our suggested source]. Data that will be submitted to AGRRA for possible processing and archival storage should be entered on the Benthos Data Entry spreadsheet.
