Collection of the recent data and analysis was funded by Northern Ireland Environment Agency under the Centre for Environmental Data and Recording (CEDaR) partnership initiatives Sublittoral Survey Northern Ireland and Nationally Important Marine Features. We thank Julia Nunn (CEDaR) for facilitating access to the data and Mark Wright, Damian McFerran, Peter Crowther and Marianne McKeown for their support during these projects. Many people were involved with the SCUBA diving fieldwork above and below water and we would like to thank all these, particularly Lin Baldock, Gary Burrows, Trevor Harrison, and Jennifer Jones, for their contributions. Temperature data was provided by Met Eireann (thanks to Glenn Nolan for providing access) and CEFAS.
