MARINE LIFE

County Recorder: Gen Broad

sea anemone or jelly fishy thing?

Species-based card indexes covering published records (mainly from TSNS) are held for most groups of Marine Fauna.
The CEFAS Laboratories at Lowestoft have records of fish stocks and some other marine fauna from the North Sea.
Further information on recording and identification can be found on the MarLIN website
Recording in recent years by Seasearch has added greatly to our knowledge of offshore fauna
