Description
Data for benthic organisms, collected between 1991 and 2015 at several locations in the Ems estuary and stored by Rijkswaterstaat (RWS) in Waterinfo Extra. more

Measurements for length, mass and abundance of benthic species. Sampling and analysis of a part of the measurements were done by NIOZ.
