Epibenthos and demersal fish monitoring in function of dredge disposal monitoring in the Belgian part of the North Sea
Epibenthos and demersal fish monitoring in function of dredge disposal monitoring
Epibenthos and demersal fish monitoring at long-term monitoring stations in the Belgian part of the North Sea
Epibenthos and demersal fish monitoring at long-term monitoring stations Trawl samples were taken within the disposal site and outside the disposal site (close neigbourhood) (classic controle/impact design). Sampling activities were in February-March and in September/October. A 8 meter shrimp beam trawl (22 mm mesh in the cod end) equipped with a bolder chain was used.The net was towed during 30 or 15 minutes at an average speed of 4 knots.

Overview of monthly epibenthic fauna in a marine and brackish zone along the salinity gradient of the Westerschelde in 1990. The data were digitized by VLIZ from the original report: Puturuhu, L. (1994). Density, biomass and feeding consumption of some demersal fish along salinity gradient in the Westerschelde area. MSc Thesis. RUG: Gent. IV, 44 pp.
Species composition, density and biomass of epifauna in the creeks of saltmarshes Waarde and Saeftinghe between February and August 1991.

Manipulative field experiment to study the predation by epibenthos on infaunal macrobenthos in a Ceriops tagal mangrove at Gazi Bay in 1992
Abiotic and biotic parameters measured in a field experiment to investigate the effect of predation by epibenthos on infaunal macrobenthos of a <i>Ceriops tagal</i> tropical mangrove monthly sampled between August 1992 and December 1992. The data were digitized by VLIZ from the original report: Garcia de Camargo, M. (1995). Interactions between macrobenthic epifauna and infauna in a Ceriops tagal mangrove at Gazi Bay, Kenya. MSc Thesis. Vrije Universiteit Brussel: Brussel. 64 pp.
This dataset contains individual counts of fish species sampled in the seagrass beds and mangrove creeks of Gazi Bay (10 locations, 41 species) on 17 and 19 July 1996. Sampling was carried out using a beam trawl (fine mesh: 6mm width). The data were digitized by VLIZ from the original report: Dethier, K. (1997). Epibenthische visgemeenschappen en diversiteit in een tropische baai (Gazi Bay, Kenya)= Epibenthic fish communities and diversity in a tropical bay (Gazi Bay, Kenya). Thesis.

Subtidal epibenthos and demersal fish monitoring in function of a foreshore suppletion at the Belgian coast, period 2013-2016
What ecological effects does a foreshore suppletion, and a beach suppletion, have on the marine ecosystem in the intertidal and shallow surf zone (<6 m depth)? The foreshore suppletion (400.000m³) was by means of an experimental set-up in the shallow coastal zone (-1 to -2m TAW) of Mariakerke. Beside it, a beach nourishment was conducted at Mariakerke (681243m³) and Middelkerke (968754m³). For the Mariakerke area, we collect biological and sedimentological samples in the impact area and in a control area (Bredene), before as after the suppletion, whereas for Middelkerke only the data after suppletion was part of the study. We monitor the marine ecosystem with a focus on the fauna within the sediment (macrofauna) and on the sediment (hyperbenthos, epi- and demersal fish fauna) in the intertidal zone and subtidal zone.
