Beschrijving
The spatial community structure of the hyperbenthos of Gazi bay was investigated during one week in October 1994. 38 stations were sampled using a hyperbenthic sledge. The data were digitized by VLIZ from the original report: Luhunga, B.Y. (1997). Spatial community structure of the hyperbenthos of Gazi Bay, Kenya. MSc Thesis. University of Gent, Zoology Institute, Marine Biology Section: Gent. 68 pp. meer

A total of 36 taxa were encountered in this study. The dominant taxa (constituting >4% of the community) were the Amphipoda Gammaridea, Mysidacea, Gastropoda, Isopoda, zoea larvae of Brachyura, Polychaeta, larvae and early post-larvae of Pisces Teleostei and Chaetognatha for the day samples, and Mysidacea and Amphipoda Gammaridea for the night samples, Ostracoda, Copepoda, Cumacea and Natantia being locally dominant. Other important taxa (between 0.1 and 3% of the total community) were Opisthobranchia, Amphipoda Caprellidea, Nematoda, Bivalvia, Tanaidacea, Oligochaeta, juveniles and megalopae of Brachyura, Scyphozoa, juvenile Pisces Teleostei, Ascidiacea, Anthozoa and Plathelminthes. Coleoptera, Anomura, Ophiuroidea, Cephalopoda, Leptostraca, Cephalochordata, Pycnogonida, zoea larvae of shrimp, Hydrozoa, Brachyura Corystidae and unidentified eggs were rare (<0.1c /1 0 of the total community).
