Scallop dredging has profound, long-term impacts on maerl
These plans are designed to improve the health of our seas, and will additionally benefit society by protecting kelp and rocky reefs which help reduce coastal erosion by dampening the effects of storms, and recovering the health of maerl
beds which capture and store carbon, as well as providing safe nursery habitats other marine life, including commercially important species.
Le Foil (1993) found that juveniles (carapace length > 50 mm) of Maja brachydactyla (referred as Maja squinado) inhabit sand, mud-sand, gravel, rock, and maerl
