The dataset is a taxonomic description of the epibenthic communities associated to Crepidula fornicata habitats. Data are High-Definition videos and photos recorded with a recently developed towed video system (called Pagure-2). 27 videos profiles and ~1300 photos (~50 photos per profiles) have been recorded. The quality of the data is not homogeneous since the cruise was planned first to test the video system at sea and to do technical tuning. Data were obtained on several Crepidula beds differing in terms of Crepidula density/biomass and Crepidula vitality (alive/dead beds). more
