Standardized video transects, 17 in total, were performed one meter above the seafloor using the Remote Operated Vehicle (ROV) Kiel 6000 to identify composition and densities of both sessile and mobile megabenthic epifauna (excluding fish, crustaceans and large protozoans) in areas with dense nodule concentrations (>15% cover) and areas with very few or no obvious surface nodules (<1%).
