    The main aim of the project is to document the fauna found on five shipwrecks in the Belgian part of the North Sea (map). While we have a fairly good understanding of the fauna of soft bottoms of our part of the North Sea, the fauna of these artificial hard substrates is largely unknown. Study of these habitats will allow us to understand species distribution patterns, and allow us to predict which species to expect on other artificial hard substrates, such as sokkels of wind mills. It is a two year research project carried out in the framework of the SPSD-II research action of the Belgian Federal Science Policy Office.
