Description
Presence, density and biomass data for ichtyofauna and epibenthos sampled in the discharge areas between 1976 and 1981 and comparison of these data with a coastal reference zone choosen in the Belgian Part of the North Sea. The data were digitized by VLIZ from the original report: Maertens, D. (1985). Vorderingsverslag betreffende de monitoring van de lozingsgebieden voor industriële afvalstoffen. Partim: biologisch monitoring onderzoek 1976-80. Rapport DUMP-I/MON/BIO/3/80. Rijksstation voor Zeevisserij: Oostende. 15 + annexes pp. more

Species list of epibenthos and fish in and around the discharge area "Dumpingzone 1" in 1980. Density, biomass, dominance and diversity of fish and epibenthos from 1976 to 1981. Densities of the most important groups of epibenthos and fish and some commercial fish and shrimp in the dumping zone are compared with those sampled at some choosen reference points (Oostende, Zeebrugge, Koksijde, Nieuwpoort and Blankenberge).
