This R and D Note defines the options and research needs for the development of the biological components of the classification schemes. It is a requirement that classification schemes should be developed by winter 1993 and implemented by winter 1994. A phased approach is, therefore, recommended for the development of classification schemes, the immediate aim being the development of an interim scheme to meet the implementation target date. The biological component of the classification schemes is to be based on the subtidal macrobenthos associated with consolidated sediment.
