Dispersal of pelagic organisms of the Belgian Continental Shelf

Study of the dispersion and dispersal mechanisms of pelagic key species on the Belgian Continental Shelf (BCS). The focus of the dataset is on those species that have a pelagic life-style or have pelagic larvae, mainly clupeidae. The Belgian coastal waters are internationally very important areas for a number of sea and coastal birds. Studying the distribution patterns of the possible food sources (i.c. Pelagic fish) of these birds will lead to a better understanding of their spatial distribution patterns. Sampling is done with the Zeeleeuw R.V. Underway data is registrated in MIDAS.
