North Sea Benthos Survey
Acronym
NSBS
Description in English
The data presented is the result of the 1986 North Sea Benthos Survey, an activity of the Benthos Ecology Working Group of ICES. Benthic samples were taken in a standardised way, on a regular grid covering the whole of the North Sea, and analysed by scientists from 10 laboratories. Extensive work was done to standardise taxonomy and identifications across the different laboratories. A total of just over 1000 species were reported from 235 stations.
Abstract in English
North Sea macrobenthos species density and abundance, measured on a regular grid of stations corresponding with ICES standard stations. All sampling was done in spring 1986.
