Meiofauna composition for 22 stations in the Dutch Continental Shelf in spring 1991. The data were digitized by VLIZ from the original report:Huys, R.; De Smet, G. (1991). Het meiobenthos van het Nederlands Continentaal Plat voorjaar 1991: rapportage in het kader van het biologisch monitoring project. NIOO: Yerseke. 57 pp. more

First part of the dataset gives an overview all meiofauna taxa with corresponding densities which were found at 22 stations sampled between 15 April and 22 July 1991. The second part gives a detailed overview of the Copepoda species, age and sex composition and related densities and biomass for some selected striata based on Huys et al. (1992).
