Sampling campaigns - Belgian Continental Shelf Wreck Fauna (pilot study)

Archived data
Availability: Unrestricted after moratorium period
Data are initially restricted, but the access condition relaxes to academic or unrestricted once a specified period of time after an event (such as collection, publication, completion of QC procedures or project cessation) has elapsed

Description
There is less knowledge of faunal diversities on hard substrates than on soft bottoms in the Belgian marine zone. This project aims at making an inventory of the faunal diversity that occurs on shipwrecks at the Belgian continental shelf.

Scope
Themes:
Biology, Biology > Ecology - biodiversity
Keywords:
Fauna, Taxonomy, Wrecks, Belgium
