Overview of monthly epibenthic fauna in a marine and brackish zone along the salinity gradient of the Westerschelde in 1990. The data were digitized by VLIZ from the original report: Puturuhu, L. (1994). Density, biomass and feeding consumption of some demersal fish along salinity gradient in the Westerschelde area. MSc Thesis. RUG: Gent. IV, 44 pp. more
The epibenthic fauna was collected with the R. V. 'Luctor' with a 3 metre beam trawl every month during 1990. Forty-five epibenthic species were found in the study area and dominated by brown shrimp Crangon crangon, lozano's goby Pomatoschistus lozanoi, sand goby P. minutus, dab Limanda limanda and shore crab Carcinus maenas.

Samples were taken from the R/V Shikmona using a 1.15 m wide beam trawl. Each "run" had a duration of 20 minutes and three "runs" were taken in each station.
