Sampling event

Species lists for benthic communities of Norwegian fjords from environmental surveys (data used in Sen et al. Estuarine, Coastal and Shelf Science 2022)

Latest version published by Nord University on 14 March 2022 Nord University
The data consists of comprehensive species lists of benthic macrofauna collected as part of environmental monitoring surveys conducted by Akvaplan-niva from aquaculture farms (data are from reference stations at least 1km distance from farms). The data were analyzed to assess large scale patterns across Norwegian fjords as part of Sen et al., 2022 (Estuarine, Coastal and Shelf Science).

Sampling Methods

Van Veen grabs were used for collecting sediment samples for measuring enviromental parameters and quantifying benthic macrofaunal communities. CTD was used for water measurements.

Study Extent Norwegian fjords (locations at least 1km distance from aquaculture farms).

Method step description:

  1. CTD casts were taken for measuring water temperature,depth, salinity, and oxygen concentration. Sediment samples were collected with a 0.1 m2Van Veen grab. One grab was used for measuring sediment environmental parameters which consisted of pH, percent pelite (sediment fraction <63μm), total organic carbon (TOC), nitrogen (TN) and phosphorus (P) content, and concentrations of the heavy metals zinc (Zn) and copper (Cu). Two replicate grabs (in some cases only one) were taken for macrofauna: sediment was sieved over 1mm mesh and preserved in 4% formaldehyde and identifications were made to lowest possible taxon (usually species) at the Akvaplan-niva lab.
