Stienen, E. 2020. Linking pelagic food web and its top predators: bird and prey fish sampling - Westbanks. Data downloaded from OBIS-SEAMAP (http://seamap.env.duke.edu/dataset/103152581) on yyyy-mm-dd and originated from OBIS (https://obis.org/dataset/e973318d-481e-4e3b-8f00-d5c1fb4f3996)

Abstract

Birds (terns) and prey fish are sampled at several locations along the Belgian coast. Fish are counted and measured. Stomach content analyses and length measurements are performed on seabirds. The results are recorded in this database.

Purpose
