Modelled vector layers (shapefiles) of spatial extent of aquaculture potential in the Dorset East Devon Fisheries Local Action Group area, 2018-2019

Polygon shapefiles converted from modelled raster layers of aquaculture potential, with values ranging between 0 (representing no potential) and 1 (representing full potential). The underlying raster layers were derived by combining conservation, legislative, human infrastructure features and activity boundaries with environmental requirements for specific aquaculture species/system combinations. The polygon boundaries delineate aquaculture potential areas with a modelled raster classification of 0.5 or higher (i.e. 50% of threshold values are optimum for the specific species/system combination)....

Electronic tag tracking data from starry smooth-hound Mustelus asterias in the northeast Atlantic 2004-2018

The data is derived from the deployment of mark-recapture and electronic tags on starry smooth-hound (Mustelus asterias) in the North Sea and English Channel. Tags were deployed throughout the time period 2004 to 2018. The dataset includes 36 individual M. asterias, 18 of which were tagged with mark-recapture tags only, and 18 were tagging with both mark-recapture and electronic tags. Six electronically tagged M. asterias were geolocated and their estimated daily geographical locations (latitude and...

Modelled gridded data of aquaculture suitability in the Dorset East Devon Fisheries Local Action Group area, 2018-2019

Modelled raster layers (GeoTiff format) of aquaculture suitability with values ranging between 0 and 1, where the value 0 represents unsuitable and 1 fully suitable. Gridded data (GeoTiff format) produced in the context of the FLAG Aquaculture Mapping project (2018-2019). The gridded layers were derived by modelling a suitability score based on environmental requirements for each specific combination of species and culture method. The purpose of the project was to identify and map areas best...

Modelled gridded data of aquaculture potential in the Dorset and East Devon Fisheries Local Action Group area, 2018-2019

Gridded data (GeoTiff format) produced in the context of the FLAG Aquaculture Mapping project (2018-2019). The purpose of the project was to identify and map areas best suited (and with least conflict) to specific types of sustainable marine aquaculture, within the boundaries of the Dorset and East Devon Fisheries Local Action Group (FLAG) area. The aquaculture potential layers were derived by combining information on conservation and legislative boundaries, human infrastructure and activity constraints, with environmental...

CLiP South Africa Microplastics in the Port of Durban 2019

This dataset contains two csv files. The first one (South_Africa_Port_Durban_Microplastics.csv) reports the results of the study carried out in the Port of Durban in 2019. The file contains water measurement from CTD casts, microplastic abundance in water sampled by microplastic pump, microplastic abundance in sediment and particulate size analysis (PSA) results from Van Veen grab samples. GPS coordinates and time of deployment are reported for each measurement. CTD measured temperature, salinity and turbulence of the...

Zooplankton abundance data derived from the Plankton Imager system from the Western English Channel and Eastern Irish Sea from 2016 to 2019

These data are abundances (in numbers per meters cubed) of zooplankton taxa, calculated from the analysis of images taken using the Plankton Imager system also included are station positions and sampling date / times. The images where collected using the PI (formerly known as Plankton Image Analyser (PIA)), during the PELTIC (Pelagic ecosystem in the western English Channel and eastern Celtic Sea) surveys from 2016 to 2019, on board the RV Cefas Endeavour. Zooplankton samples...

CLiP Belize Microplastics in biota 2019

This dataset contains 2 csv files. One file contains data on microplastic abundance expressed in number of particles from biota samples (queen conch, Lobatus gigas) collected in Belize in 2018 (and analysed in 2019) with indication of sample wet weight and blank used. The other file contains the profiles of the ATR-FT-IR spectrum analysis of plastic pieces found in the conch stomachs. A README text file contains the legend of the columns of the two...

Historical Seabed Drifters Dataset 1969 to 1990

Dataset containing historical Seabed drifters data. A dataset for all deployments and returns has been created. It contains the following information. Drifter Releases (By year/Drop). Drifter Releases AND Returns (By year/Drop). Each file contains information on: Lat/Long /Date of release, Lat/Long /Date of return, Days out. The Dataset contains 11704 entries for Seabed drifters (1969-1990), with a 41 percent Return’s rate. At Cefas (historically MAFF), from the early 1960s to 1990 large numbers of specially...

CLiP Belize Land Waste Audits and Interviews 2019

This dataset contains 4 csv files. HouseholdsolidwasteauditBelizedata.csv reports solid waste abundance and composition data from households expressed in number of items, weight or volume; and CommercialsolidwasteauditBelizedata.csv reports solid waste abundance and composition data from commercial activities. HouseholdsolidwasteauditBelizemetadata.csv reports the results of interviews done when solid waste samples were collected to gather information about household occupants social status and behaviour, including the fate of solid waste not collected through the official waste management service. CommercialsolidwasteauditBelizemetadata.csv reports...

Seafloor Marine Litter from UK EEZ zones between 2012 and 2017

This data set was used to assess the density of litter in the seafloor for the MSFD indicator assessment that was completed in 2018 and published in 2019 at https://moat.cefas.co.uk/pressures-from-human-activities/marine-litter/seafloor-litter. The data contained counts of each type of litter category. The data is contained in the file, litter 2017 new.csv. Details on what the data columns mean are shown in the readme file. Data is only from the UK EEZ zone. This is made up...

CLiP South Africa Marine Litter Accumulation Study (Cefas-UKZN) 2019

This dataset contains 2 csv files. The file South_Africa_Marine_Litter_Data.csv contains data on marine litter found during beach surveys in Umhlanga (north of Durban) and Amanzimtoti (south of Durban) in South Africa in September 2019. The number of items and the weight in kg is reported for each litter category. Each survey is named with the name of the location plus a capital letter between A and L for Amanzimtoti; and between A and K for...

Predicted sedimentation rates data for the Baltic Sea derived from samples from 1992 - 2019

Spatial prediction of the sediment accumulation rate, provided as a .geotif file (as an average linear rate in cm yr-1 since 1986) for the Baltic Sea created using a machine learning approach. Predicted rates of sediment accumulation vary from 0.08-1.67 cm yr-1. Field measurements were acquired between 1992 and 2012 as compiled by EMODnet Geology. Predictor variables were derived from 2003 to 2018 from various sources including EMODnet Bathymetry, Copernicus and Cefas staff. Modelling subsequently...

Macrobenthos Data from Shoreham, the Tyne and the Thames Estuaries, UK, 2000 to 2006

These data describe counts of macrobenthic infauna (with associated station metadata) taken from sediment samples collected at sites in the Tyne, Thames and Shoreham, UK from 2000 to 2006. For selected samples, wet biomass data is also included per taxon. The samples from the Shoreham site were collected across an aggregate extraction area over 4 years with the aim to test several habitat mapping techniques by documenting the presence of different faunal levels across the...

Migration of tagged silver eels in the Atlantic 2006 - 2014
