Data was gathered or brought together during SPEEK project (part of SPSD-II federal science policy programme): Study of Post-extraction ecological effects in the Kwintebank sand dredging area. more

Bottom samples from stations in the Kwintebank (Belgian Continental Shelf) area were taken in 1978, 1997, 2001, 2003 and 2004. Copepoda were identified to species level (1978 & 1997) or to ecotype level (2001, 2003 and 2004). Ecotypes are defined as: - Epibenthic species - Endobenthic species - Interstitial species - Free swimming species
