Mytilus edulis and Fabricia sabella in poorly-sorted muddy sand or muddy gravel shores
|Within Vocab||Marine Habitat Classification for Britain and Ireland Version 97.06|
|Definition||Pebbles, gravel or sand with mud in sheltered Firths with strand of fucoid algae which has a limited infauna characterised by juvenile infaunal Mytilus edulis, often in very high numbers. Polychaetes such as Fabricia sabella, Scoloplos armiger, Pygospio elegans and Hediste (Nereis) diversicolor and bivalves Macoma balthica and Cerastoderma edule typical of muddy sediments characterise the community. Fabricia sabella is typically found amongst algal holdfasts and between cobbles on rocky shores. This biotope description is devised mainly from records from the Dornoch Firth and Moray Firth. [More records are needed to verify this biotope].|
