Contact: Onderzoeksgroep Mariene Biologie (UGent-MARBIOL), more ; Instituut voor landbouw-, visserij en voedingsonderzoek (LV-ILVO), more

Availability: The data can be made available upon request, please use contact information.

Description
The goal of this project is to establish the reference situation of benthic macro-invertebrates (macro-, endobenthos en macro-epibenthos) and demersal fish in the windfarm area. The data will be used as reference when evaluating the windfarm project during the years of exploitation. more

Database on density and biomass of benthic macro-invertebrates and demersal fish.

Scope
Themes:
Biology > Benthos, Biology > Ecology - biodiversity, Biology > Fish, Biology > Invertebrates, Biology > Productivity - biomass
