Description
Experiment on the short-term effects of beam trawling in the Southern North Sea. more

A BACI experimental approach was used to investigate the short-term effects of beam trawling on the diversity, biomass and community structure of meiofauna on real fishing grounds in the Southern North Sea. The dataset includes meiofauna species counts from two locations sampled once before and twice post-trawling.
