Abundance and biomass of macrobenthic and megabenthic organisms collected from grab and corer samples and beam trawl catches taken in the Chukchi Sea between 2008 and 2014


This dataset is a component of the PAN-Arctic data collection of benthic BIOtas (PANABIO) and has been collated during the Census of Marine Life project Arctic Ocean Diversity (ArcOD; http://www.arcodiv.org/). It contains a total of 59,687 abundance and wet biomass records of 488 macro- and megabenthic taxa (species to genus level) identified in 1,212 van Veen grab and 49 HAPS corer samples and 89 beam trawl catches taken at 501 stations located in the Chukchi Sea at water depths of 12–54 m during 13 cruises between 2008 and 2014. The dataset is also available in a PostgreSQL-based data warehouse that can be accessed and queried through an open-access frontend web service at https://critterbase.awi.de/panabio.
