Description
Density and length-frequency data from Mesopodopsis slabberi sampled between May 1990 and December 1991 for 14 stations in the Western Scheldt. The data were digitized by VLIZ from the original report: Uppabullung, A. (1999). Population dynamics of the mysid, Mesopodopsis slabberi (Crustaceae, Mysidaceae). MSc Thesis. RUG: Gent. 60 pp. more

Samples of Mesopodopsis slabberi were taken on monthly basis from May 1990 to December 1990 and on a fortnightly basis from January 1991 to December 1991. Each survey comprised 14 stations along the salinity gradient. All samples were taken during daytime (using a hyperbenthic sledge) when hyperbenthic mysids are known to concentrate near the bottom.
