Gridded abundance maps of the benthic species from the North Sea
Flanders Marine Institute (VLIZ); Royal Netherlands Institute for Sea Research (NIOZ); (2015): Gridded abundance maps of the benthic species from the North Sea; European Marine Observation Data Network (EMODnet) Biology project (, funded by the European Commission’s Directorate - General for Maritime Affairs and Fisheries (DG MARE).

Data products

Gridded abundance maps of selected benthos taxa in the North Sea. This product was developed with DIVA (Data-Interpolating Variational Analysis) and the Scale: log-transformed abundance. Data was derived from the 1986 North Sea Benthos Survey (Craeymeersh J., P. Kingston, E. Rachor, G. Duineveld, Carlo Heip, Edward Vanden Berghe, 1986: North Sea Benthos Survey.).
