Description
Study of the epibenthos and fish community at the nuclear power station in Doel (Western Scheldt) during the period September 1991-February 1992. The data were digitized by VLIZ from the original report: Maebe, S. (1992). De vis- en crustaceagemeenschap van de Westerschelde ter hoogte van de kerncentrale van Doel gedurende het winterhalfjaar 1991-1992. BSc Thesis. Katholieke Universiteit Leuven. Faculteit Wetenschappen: Leuven. 106 pp. more

Monthly sampling of the nuclear power water circulating system using nets with 2,5 mm mesh size. Dataset contains densities of fish and epibenthos species. Additionally the length of the fish species was measured.
