Description
Densities of phytoplankton and zooplankton sampled 2 days (06 and 12 October 1992) in the oyster farms at Gazi Creek (Kenya). The data were digitized by VLIZ from the original report: Bollen, A. (1993). Saccostrea cucullata (von Born, 1778): voedselaanwezigheid in een mangrovekreek (Gazi, Kenya) = Saccostrea cucullata (von Born, 1778): food availability in a mangrove creek (Gazi, Kenya). MSc Thesis. Vrije Universiteit Brussel: Brussel. 105 pp. more

Study of the food availability of the mangrove oyster, Saccostrea cucullata, in a mangrove creek in Gazi in the form of zooplankton, phytoplankton and determination of particulate carbon, dryweight and chlorophyll a,b in the waters between the shelves of the oyster farms.
