Description
The database was set up to store Infauna samples from North Sea ICES rectangles. Sampling was executed on the BTS surveys in august 03 and 04. At the same time 2m and 8 m Beam trawl tracks and CTD were taken. Infaunal samples for Dutch partners where analysed by the Marine Biology Section, Ugent. The dataset also includes a trait based fuzzy coding categorisation on genus level.
