Abstract
    This paper summarizes studies on the meio- and macrofauna of a linear subtidal sandbank, the Kwinte Bank, situated in the Belgian Coastal waters, which is exploited for sand and gravel. The distribution of the macrofauna is strongly correlated with the gradient in grain size, but this is much less the case for the meiofauna. Especially nematodes seem to be able to exploit microhabitats more efficiently than the macrofauna.
