This digitized historical paper contains information about the floristical and faunistical survey of the coasts near Alexandria (Egypt) including lake Edku, lake Mareotis and Suez canal that was made by Adolf Steuer in summer and autumn of 1933. It contains specific information and description of the sampling protocol that was followed, for the collection of plankton and benthos. It is also contains detailed description of the habitats and the bionomic division at Alexandria and contains three charts that show the location of benthic and planktonic stations. The digitization of this report was made by LifewatchGreece team. more

Sampling Methods: In general, all excursions were one-day trip. The motor-launch of the Marine Laboratory "El Hoot" about 15 meters long was used for dredging. The isobath of 200 meters was surpassed only at a few points. A rowing boat in shallow water and during favorable conditions was also used. For excursions along the coast, near Rosetta, Lake Mariout and Lake Edku the motor car of the Laboratory was used. For plankton samples only medium sized nets with celluloid buckets with gauze bottom were available. 19 stations were sampled for plankton once or several times. For bottom samples almost exclusively a dredge with 20x70 cm opening was used. A single catch was made in a depth of 20 m with a large otter trawl in the eastern part of the Bay of Abukir. Almost 150 stations were bottom sampled.
