Description 
Summary

Macrozoobenthos has been sampled by National Environmental Research Institute - Department of Marine Ecology and the Danish counties since 1979. By 2005 the sampling is performed according to the latest revision of the Danish National Monitoring Programme, Novana. The time series are used to assess the effects of increasing eutrophication and eventual oxygen depletion.
