Bottom Trawling as a Driver of Deep Seascape Transformation


TrawledSeas is a 2 year research project that investigates the role of bottom trawling on the geomorphic evolution of deep (>200 m) sea regions.

It started in December 2020 and is led by Ruth Durán at the University of Malta.


The main  objective  of TrawledSeas is  to quantitatively  characterise the contribution of bottom trawling on the morphology of different geological and climatic deep seafloor settings over a range of spatial scales, from fine (m–dam) to mesoscale (5–100 km).

This project has received funding from the European Union’s Horizon 2020 research and innovation programme under Marie Sklodowska-Curie Grant Agreement No. 867471
