List of collected phytoplankton and zooplankton taxa and their densities sampled at 3 points in the port of Oostende in 1965. The data were digitized by VLIZ from the original report: De Pauw, N. (1969). Contribution à l'étude du plankton dans le port d'Ostende. more

Surface plankton samples of 50L were collected using a plankton net (40µm) at 3 points in the port of oostende. In the first part of the dataset an overview of all species found during the whole sampling period is given. The second part of the dataset gives a detailed overview of species (and their densities per 50L) which were present (or absent) per month and per sampling point. The third part of the dataset contains some physicochemical measurements for bimonthly samples at the 3 sampling points.
