    The dataset comprises data on the substrate type, temperature, salinity and benthos from 58 samples colected in Danube front area in the period March 1960 - July 1960, (Sulina-Portita sector, Romanian Black Sea Coast). The sediment samples were taken with a Van-Veen grab, the sampling size is was - 0.1 m2. The samples have been preserved with 10% buffered formalin, then sieved through a 2 mm, 0.25 mm and 0.10 mm mesh sieve and subsequently stored in 70% ethanol. The database comprises taxonomic and quantitative data (individuals count, density and wet weight biomass per square meter) for 95 macrobenthic species and 10 supraspecific groups.

    The dataset comprises data on the substrate type, temperature, salinity and benthos from 21 samples colected in NW Black Sea in the period 9-24 May 1997. Benthos samples have been take with a cylindrical plagtic bottle with cut off bottom named "Bucov" (S=1/172 cm2, h=10-12 cm). The sediment was preserved in buffered formalin 4% , then sieved through a 1 and 0.25 mm mesh sieve and subsequently stored in 70% ethanol. The database comprises taxonomic and quantitative data (density and wet weight biomass per square meter) for 75 macrobenthic species and 2 supraspecific groups.

    The dataset comprises data on the substrate type, temperature, salinity and benthos from 77 samples colected in 3 fixed points (P1 - 44.2357 Lat. N, 28.6288 Long. E, depth - 1.5 m; P2 - 44.2388 Lat. N, 28.6363 Long. E, depth - 4.5 m; P3 - 44.2416 Lat. N, 28.6447 Long. E, depth - 8 m) in the period 20.10 1959 - 2.11.1961, in Mamaia sector (Constanta, Romanian Black Sea Coast). The sediment samples were taken with a Van-Veen grab, the sampling size of the first 28 samples was - 0.1 m2, while for the rest of 29 - 77 samples it was 0.05 m2.. The samples have been preserved with 10% buffered formalin, then sieved through a 1 and 0.25 mm mesh sieve and subsequently stored in 70% ethanol. The database comprises taxonomic and quantitative data (individuals count, density and wet weight biomass per square meter) for 30 macrobenthic species and 6 supraspecific groups.

    Belgium and Kenya have a long tradition of collaboration in marine sciences. In 2012 the Kenya Marine and Fisheries Institute (KMFRI) and the Flanders Marine Institute (VLIZ) renewed this collaboration with a Memorandum of Understanding (MoU). A first step already started under the umbrella of LifeWatch with the recovery of biotic datasets resulting from joint Belgian-Kenyan marine research activities. This data collection combines all biotic data recovered from theses and reports resulting in the Eastern African region conducted between 1873 and 1999.
