    Breeding bird data for 7 water birds (Bontbekplevier, Dwergstern, Grote stern, Kluut, Noordse Stern, Strandplevier, Visdief) in the Delta area, the Netherlands, in 1979 and 1987. The data were digitized by VLIZ from the original report: Baptist, H.J.M.; Colijn, F.; Marteijn, E.C.L.; Meininger, P.L.M.; Meire, P.M.; Twisk, F. (Ed.) (1988). Gevleugeld onderzoek: watervogels in veranderende watersystemen. University of Gent, Laboratory of oecology of animals, zoogeography en nature conservation: Gent. 22 pp.

    Long term measurements of phytoplankton composition in the Dutch national part of the North Sea. Samples were taken 12 - 24 times per year between 2000 and 2018 and analysed to the level of genus, species, or other taxon group. The dataset has been used for assessment of the marine environment and habitat quality in the scope of the OSPAR Quality Status Reports and the Marine Strategy Framework Directive. Currently, there are known issues concerning the quality of the data caused by changes in analytic procedures and labs. When more information is available, this will be published through EMODnet. The monitoring is directed and the dataset is maintained by Rijkswaterstaat, the executing body of the Dutch Ministery for Infrastructure and Environment. Publication of the dataset has been facilitated by Deltares, The Netherlands.

    Overview of macrobenthos species in the Maas plain (Westplaat, Haringvliet) in 1988. The data were digitized by VLIZ from the original report: Craeymeersch, J.A.; Engelberts, A.; Buijs, J.

    Long term measurements of benthos composition in the Dutch national part of the North Sea. Samples have been taken by benthic sledge, box-corer, video and Hamon sampler. Samples were taken annually between 1991-2010, in 2012 and in 2015 and analysed to the genus or species level. For video sampling, coverage percentages were measured. The dataset has been used for assessment of the marine environment and habitat quality in the scope of the OSPAR Quality Status Reports and the Marine Strategy Framework Directive.

    Counts of bivalves and polychaetes per family for several replicates sampled at 4 stations in the Voordelta between April 1988 and March 1989 and average density and biomass of macrobenthos species for several clustered stations sampled in the Grevelingen and Oosterschelde area between July and August 1988.

    Port of Rotterdam is carrying out the Project Mainport Development Rotterdam, PMR, expanding the port with 1,000 hectares through suppletion of sand in the shallow coastal Voordelta area in the North Sea. As the Voordelta has the status of protected nature reserve (Natura2000 area), the loss of habitat, caused by the expansion of the port, must be compensated for. As part of the compensating measures, the Dutch national government established a series of protected areas in the Voordelta region and is following the effects of these measures. This dataset contains abundances and biomasses of fish in the “Voordelta”. The set exists of a pre-protected status data (2003 – 2007) and a post-protected status (currently still under embargo).
