Description
Weekly occurrence and counts of epifauna on living and dead Ostrea edulis in the Sluice dock between July 1965 and June 1966. The data were digitized by VLIZ from the original report: Vaes, M. (1966). Oecologische studie van de epifauna van Ostrea edulis L.; vergelijking van de epifauna van levende en dode oesters. BSc Thesis. Rijksuniversiteit Gent: Gent. [194]., fig. Drawings pp. more

Weekly samples of oysters were taken in the Sluice Dock between 05July 1965 and 06June 1966 for a qualitative and quantitative study of epifauna (focus on Polychaeta) and diatoms on living oysters and empty shelves of Ostrea edulis. Densities of larval stadia of the plankton who will settle on the oysters are noted. Additionally growth is measured for Crepidula fornicata, Polydora ciliata, Balanus improvisus, Mytilus edulis, Magalia perarmata and chains of Crepidula fornicata were studied.
