PART 1: Distribution of Fishing Effort and PhysicalInteraction with the Seabed.

1. Spatial and temporal patterns in North Sea fishing effort (S.Jennings, K.J. Warr, S.P.R. Greenstreet and A.J. R. Cotter).

2. Physical impact of beam trawls on seabed sediments (R.Fonteyne).

3. Is bottom traw3ling partly responsible for the regression ofPosidonia oceanica meadows in the Mediterranean Sea (G.D.Ardizzone, P. Tucci, A. Somaschini and A. Belluscio).

PART 2: Effects of Fishing on Benthic Fauna andHabitats.

4. Fishing mortality of populations of megafauna in sandysediments (M.J.N. Bergman and J.W. van Santbrink).

5. Effects of otter trawling on the benthos and environment inmuddy sediments (B.Ball, B. Munday and I. Tuck).

6. The effects of scallop dredging on gravelly seabedcommunities (C. Bradsaw, L.O. Veale, A.S. Hill and A.R. Brand).

7. Impact of scallop dredging on maerl grounds (J.M.Hall-Spencer and P.G. Moore).

PART 3: Fishing As A Source of Energy Subsidies.

8. The behavioural response of benthic scavengers tootter-trawling disturbance in the Mediterranean (M. Demestre, P.Sanchez and M.J. Kaiser).

9. Food subsidies generated by the beam-trawl fisher in thesouthern North Sea (M. Fonds and S. Groenewold).

10. Impact of trawling on populations of the invertebratescavenger Asterias rubens (K. Ramsay, M.J. Kaiser, A.D. Rijnsdorp,J.A. Craeymeersch and J. Ellis).

PART 4: Long-Term Changes Associated with Fishing.

12. Distribution of macrofauna in relation to themicro-distribution of trawling effort (J.A. Craeymeersch, G.J.Piet, A.D. Rijnsdorp and J. Buijs).

13. Long-term changes in North Sea Benthos: Discerning the roleof fisheries (C.L. J. Frid and R.A. Clark).
