Amanay and El Banquete Seamounts (Southern Fuerteventura) is one of the areas chosen to be depicted in the frame of INDEMARES project. The midpoint of the study area is located at 25 km from Fuerteventura and 65 km from Gran Canaria. Methodology approach complies with a multidisciplinary perspective, having described the area from geological, oceanographic, biological and fisheries points of view. Habitat identification and mapping has been possible through intense sampling and the use of habitat suitability modeling. Species structuring sensitive habitats have played a leading role, since those habitats inventory and mapping were the project’s main aim. Direct samplers have been complemented with visual samplers, the latter permitting a higher sampling effort without increasing benthic habitat impact. Several types of communities have been identified as “Habitat 1170, Reefs”, following Annex 1 from Habitats Directive (Council Directive 92/43/CEE) from European Union, representing ...
