Benthic Genera Presence and Absence in the North Sea from 1990 to 2011

Distribution data for benthic genera in the North Sea, covering a 22-year timespan from 1990 to 2011. This data accompanies the manuscript “Capturing threshold responses of marine benthos along gradients of natural and anthropogenic change”, by E. Couce, G.H. Engelhard and M. Schratzberger, Journal of Applied Ecology, in press. It was obtained from re-analysis of OBIS benthic data supplemented with benthic survey data collected by Cefas in the same period, with the study region partitioned...

The purpose of this study was to propose a food web indicator which has been explicitly called for to inform policy via food web status assessment as part of...

Phytoplankton abundance data from the Gibraltar coastline 2009-2019

Full community phytoplankton analysis results, expressed as cells per litre, from samples collected from the Gibraltar coastline between 2009 to 2019. The data were derived from water samples collected at a 2m depth using a Niskin sampler on an quarterly basis at four sites by HM Government of Gibraltar. Site positions are included in the dataset, and are accurate to +/- 30m. Samples were preserved with acidified Lugol's Iodine and sent immediately after collection. Once...

CLiP Belize Microplastics in sediment 2019

This dataset contains 2 csv file. BelizeSedimentMicroplastics.csv file reports data on microplastic abundance in sediment expressed in number of particles for 5g sediment. Sediment was collected at six locations in Belize between May and June 2019, but only four were analysed for microplastics due to time restrictions (only PSA reported for the two sites left). The file also reports information on blank used for calculations, grab GPS coordinates, deployment time and the particulate size analysis...

A data product derived from Northeast Atlantic groundfish data from scientific trawl surveys 1983-2020

This is a data product to support state indicators that are based from groundfish biological data, derived using primary data from surveys undertaken in the Northeast Atlantic between 1983 and 2020. Catch records by taxonomic group and by length category in terms of biomass and numbers of fish standardised to duration (per hour) or to the area swept by the haul. Data are available from multiple surveys using data downloaded from the ICES database of...

Release and recapture data from cod tagged in the North Sea from 1961 to 2015

Release and recapture data relating to cod tagged and released in the North Sea (ICES Subarea 4). Between 1961 and 2015, a total of 22,573 cod were tagged and released using either conventional marker-ID tags and in the more recent years of the dataset, electronic data storage tags (DSTs), of which 6,703 tags were subsequently returned. For tagged fish that were recaptured as much information as possible was recorded, namely the recapture date and location,...

Structure and function assessment of macrobenthic communities

Four infaunal replicate samples were collected at each site using 0.1 m2 Nioz corers (diameter of approximately 30 cm) were sieved on a 1mm mesh sieve, the sieve remains were then sorted and preserved following the methodology described by Boyd (2002). On return, to the laboratory all the infaunal samples were identified to the lowest taxonomic level as possible, counted and weighted. Five epifaunal replicate samples were collected at each site using 2 m beam...

Cefas Lowestoft Sample Data Management System

David Morris
This dataset has been extracted as part of an exercise to assemble "all" Cefas Temperature Data and publish it in a Data paper. It is one of 17 Cefas data sources assembled. The Lowestoft Sample Data Management System (LSDM) was the tool used for tracking the ingestion, processing and analysis of marine water, sediment and radiological samples. It was replaced by the Cefas Laboratory Information Management System (LIMS) in 2015. This dataset is an extract...

Cefas Fishing Survey System

David Morris
This dataset has been extracted as part of an exercise to assemble "all" Cefas Temperature Data and publish it in a Data paper. It is one of 17 Cefas data sources assembled. The Fishing Survey System (FSS) is a purpose–built database used to hold and maintain Cefas fish survey data, primarily from government mandated surveys. This SQL database holds the main research and charter vessel fishing surveys data from 1901 to present. It includes station,...

Cefas Fisheries Ecology Research Programme

David Morris
This dataset has been extracted as part of an exercise to assemble "all" Cefas Temperature Data and publish it in a Data paper. It is one of 17 Cefas data sources assembled. Diurnal and seasonal changes in water temperature in South Wales estuaries and saltmarshes. Data were collected in 1995 and 1996 from three estuarine locations in South Wales during a study of the thermal experience and tolerance of estuarine animals. The data comprise hourly...

Fladen experimental fishing impact recovery data - Seabed imagery analysis

Total counts and derived abundance codes of individual taxa identified from video files still photographs of the seabed and total counts of nephrops burrows identified from video files, with associated station information. The digital video and still photographs were acquired from cameras mounted on a camera sledge frame at sampling stations located within six experimental boxes (three treatments and three control) during a fishing impact recovery survey within the Fladen Grounds. Data were collected at...

Monthly average non-algal Suspended Particulate Matter concentrations

Tiago Silva
Spatially gridded, monthly average of non-algal Suspended Particulate Matter (SPM). Based on satellite derived Ifremer OC5 algorithm (Gohin et al 2011). Interpolated and merged data from SeaWiFS, MODIS, MERIS and VIIRS satellite sensors. Based on Gohin et al (2005) OC5 algorithm that jointly estimates the load of Chlorophyll and non-algal suspended particulate matter. This algorithm has been validated against in-situ coastal observations for the English Channel and Bay of Biscay (Gohin, 2011) and modified to...

Quantitative sediment composition predictions for the north-west European continental shelf

Spatial predictions of the fractions of mud, sand and gravel as continuous response variables for the north-west European continental shelf. Mud, sand and gravel fractions range from 0-1 (i.e. 0-100%). These fractions were generated from two additive log-ratios (ALR), ALRs and ALRm which are independent, unconstrained response variables. These raw predictions as rasters are also included presented in the attached dataset. Predicted fractions have been combined to predict the likely sediment classification based on the...

Reconstruction of North Sea trawling effort 1985-2015

Spatial distribution of total international otter and beam trawling fishing effort, for all ICES rectangles (0.5 degree latitude by 1 degree longitude) of the North Sea, covering a 31-year time span from 1985 to 2015. The dataset was largely reconstructed using compiled effort data from 7 fishing effort time-series and completed by estimations of missing data. Lat and Long coordinates in the data represent the centre of each ICES rectangle. For the 31-year period from...

Seawater salinity trend analysis for the North East Atlantic (North West European Shelf)

This gridded data product provides a trend analysis to estimate the changes in Seawater Salinity at sea surface and near sea bed for the North West European Shelf from 1st January 1985 to 30th June 2014 at 7 Km spatial resolution. Monthly and seasonal trend values were generated by applying a Generalised Additive Model (GAM) on a time series of modelling output data for Salinity at 7 Km spatial resolution from the North West Shelf...

CLiP Solomon Islands Marine Litter Abundance and Composition

This dataset contains 2 csv files. The file Solomon_Marine_Litter_Data.csv contains data on litter found on marine beaches in Solomon Islands between November 2018 and January 2019. The number of itemsis reported for each litter category.
