Fifty trawl fishers were interviewed to record their knowledge of biogenic habitat, with charts being marked by the fishers before being digitised and collated. When these areas were overlaid together, a total of 65 sites were identified around the country where multiple fishers (up to 9) described the same or similar habitats at overlapping locations, or in close proximity. Of these 47 were suggested as “Key Sites” for consideration for future empirical sampling.
