We have finished research on the planned points of the expedition, but because the weather is so good, we are extending the area to be surveyed in order to check and know better the extent to which the protected area should be expanded. We are moving forward with work in the Fort d’en Moreu area, and have carried out ROV dives in ten stations. We have filmed trawling marks over rhodoliths. The majority of them are very deteriorated, which is most likely because of this aggressive type of fishing gear that is very damaging to these habitats.
