This database contains data on population characteristics of mysid shrimp, sampled in the Scheldt estuary, Belgian coastal waters and Belgian coastal harbours. more

Mysid shrimp populations were sampled, where relevant, at each of the sampling locations. From the sampled biota, density, diversity, population composition (sex and developmental stage) and fecundity were determined. Mysid shrimp populations were sampled with a hyperbenthic sledge. Sampling was done quantitatively in the Scheldt and in the coastal zone. In the harbours the mysids were sampled qualitatively.
