Summary(Plain Language Summary, not published)
The Coastguard vessel CCGS Nahidik was used in summer 2006 as a research platform to collect seabed sediment and fauna samples, video footage and to conduct offshore surveys of the Beaufort Sea. This Beaufort Seabed Mapping Project was designed to assess the environmental impact of offshore hydrocarbon exploration and transportation on the renewable resources of the Beaufort Sea. Knowledge of the location and sensitivity of unique seabed habitats related to sustaining the renewable resources of the Beaufort Sea is required to provide a basis for assessing the impact of proposed offshore pipeline routes and exploration drill sites on the Beaufort ecosystem. This report is on benthic habitats and epifauna identified and quantified from video stations in the Beaufort Sea, taken aboard CCGS Nahidik, 1 - 12 August 2006.
