Baltic offshore circalittoral mixed bottoms characterized dominated corticated Bryozoa
Baltic offshore bottoms in the aphotic zone, below halocline/pycnocline with at least 10- 90 % coverage of hard (rock/boulders/stone) and 10-90 % soft substrata (e.g. muddy/coarse sediment/sand). Epibenthic Bryozoa cover at least 10 % of the seabed, and more than other perennial attached erect groups. Out of the epibenthic Bryozoa, corticated Bryozoa constitute at least 50 % of the biomass.
Substrate is soft or crystalline rock, boulders or stones mixed with mobile substrates such as sand or coarse substrate. Depth is typically from 20 to 100 meters.
