Description
In October 1994, the hyperbenthos of Gazi Bay was sampled at 38 locations using a hyperbenthic sledge to study the diversity of isopods. Sampling (day and night) was conducted in as many different habitats as possible. The data were digitized by VLIZ from the original report: De Bont, R. (1999). Diversiteit van de isopoden van Gazi Bay (Kenia)= Diversity of the isopods of Gazi Bay, Kenya. Thesis. Universiteit Gent: Ghent. 28 pp.
