North Sea phytoplankton pigments 2010 to 2011

Veronique Creach
These data contain information about the individual accessory pigments of phytoplankton measured by High Pressure Liquid Chromatography (HPLC) from two North Sea International Bottom Trawl Surveys in 2010 and 2011. These have been applied like a 'fingerprint' to identify phytoplankton functional types (PFT's). 10L water samples were taken from niskin bottles on a rosette fired at various depths, or from the continuous flow ferrybox water supply (approx. 4m water depth) in adverse weather conditions. Water...

RSMP Baseline Dataset

Keith Cooper
This dataset was compiled for the Regional Seabed Monitoring Plan (RSMP) baseline assessment reported in Cooper and Barry (2017). The dataset comprises of 33,198 macrofaunal samples (83% with associated data on sediment particle size composition) covering large parts of the UK continental shelf. Whilst most samples come from existing datasets, also included are 2,500 new samples collected specifically for the purpose of this study. These new samples were collected during 2014-2016 from the main English...

Shelf Sea Biogeochemistry - East of Celtic Deep Lander

Tom Hull
This data set consists of biogeochemical sensor data from seabed moorings. The mooring consists of a 3-legged stainless steel "minilander" 1.5 meters high. The biogeochemical sensors are mounted at 1 meter above the seabed. Temperature, salinity, dissolved oxygen, chlorophyll fluorescence, turbidity where fitted to a Cefas ESM2 data logger. These instruments gathered data for 5 minutes every 30 minutes. Sensors were validated against in-situ samples during deployment and recovery. Fluorometers were standardised using fluorosphere beads....

Large Woody Debris Restoration Field Experiment Dataset

Murray Thompson
Riverine species and environmental data relating to Thompson et al. (2017) Large woody debris rewilding rapidly restores biodiversity in riverine food webs. Journal of Applied Ecology. The purpose of this study was to test for causal evidence of ecological restoration following the introduction of large woody debris in rivers. Chlorophyll-a and diatom community structure was estimated from stone scrapes; a Hess sampler (0.017m2) with 335µm mesh was used to collect invertebrates and coarse (CPOM) and...

Shelf Sea Biogeochemistry - Nymph Bank Lander

Tom Hull
This data set consists of biogeochemical sensor data from seabed moorings. Temperature, salinity, dissolved oxygen, chlorophyll fluorescence, turbidity where fitted to a Cefas ESM2 data logger. These instruments gathered data for 5 minutes every 30 minutes. Sensors were validated against in-situ samples during deployment and recovery. Fluorometers were standardised using fluorosphere beads. Turbidity meters were calibrated using Stabical (Hach, US). The moorings were also fitted with upward facing acoustic Doppler current profilers (ADCP), this data...

Management Strategy Evaluation toolkit for Ecopath with Ecosim (model output and technical report)

Christopher Lynam
This dataset consists of output from a computer model that predicts responses of 69 functional groups from plankton to whales to changing fishing pressure. Scenarios are run using the newly built plug-in (see report) that allows for an assessment of the effect of model parameter uncertainty. The base model is the ICES key-run of EwE for the North Sea described here http://data.cefas.co.uk/#/View/2847. Format of the data: Zipped csv files covering the hindcast period 1991-2013 (inclusive)...

Marine Climate Change Impacts: 10 years’ experience of science to policy reporting

MCCIP
This report card summarises how our understanding of marine climate change impacts has developed since the first MCCIP report card and lessons for science to policy reporting.

Shelf Sea Biogeochemistry - Celtic Deep 2 SmartBuoy

Tom Hull
This data set consists of biogeochemical sensor data from SmartBuoy moorings (Mills et al, 2005). SmartBuoys consist of a 4 meter tall stainless steel frame with a fibreglass torroid for buoyancy. Instruments are attached at a nominal 1 meter depth to the frame. In-air sensors are mounted to the top of the torroid. The buoys feature a satellite telemetry system providing near real-time telemetry. Temperature, salinity, dissolved oxygen, chlorophyll fluorescence, turbidity and photosynthetic active radiation...

Sediment Organic Carbon in Marine Sediments around England and Wales 1996 - 2015

Claire Mason
Sediment organic carbon (and nitrogen) data from marine samples collected between 1996-2015 around England and Wales. Measurements for <2mm sediment fraction or/and <63µm sediment fraction are given. Silt/clay(%) is also included (for either/both sieving and laser methodologies) as well as sample weight where available. These data have been collated from a variety of sources, including CSEMP monitoring, nephrops monitoring, fishing pressures research and the NERC shelf seas programme to support on-going investigations for the Cefas/Defra...

Cefas Historic Secchi Depth Measurements

Elisa Capuzzo
Secchi depth measurements, collected for studying the effects of the light climate on pelagic fish (e.g. fish school position in the water column compared to the depth of penetration of light); The dataset comprise 470 Secchi depth measurements collected in 1931, 1937, 1946-1950, 1968. The coordinates of each observation were generally not indicated in the logbooks and were derived from the associated station-sheets. Occasionally the exact coordinates were not specified but only the location of...

Molecular characterization of an Endozoicomonas-like species associated with mass mortalities of king scallop Pecten maximus L. in United Kingdom

Irene Cano
The king scallop Pecten maximus L. is the fastest growing fishery in the UK and currently the second most valuable. Mass mortality events in scallops have been reported associated with rickettsia-like organisms (RLOs) world-wide, however the causative agents were uncharacterised. In May 2013 and 2014 two mass mortality events affecting king scallops were recorded in the Lyme Bay Marine Protected Area (MPA) South West England. Histopathological examination showed gill epithelial tissue infected with RLO at...

Zooplankton data from Ring net, CALPS and PIA from the Western English Channel and Eastern Irish Sea in 2016

Sophie Pitois
Zooplankton data was collected from 3 different devices: Ring net, Continuous automated Litter and Plankton Sampler (CALPS) and Plankton Image Identifier (PIA), during the PELTIC 2016 survey (Pelagic ecosystem in the western English Channel and eastern Celtic Sea, 3rd to the 19th October) on board the RV “Cefas Endeavour”. Zooplankton samples and images were collected at 40 stations during the night. Depth-integrated vertical hauls using the Ring net were deployed with the aim of sampling...
