Description 
Summary

The aim is to establish the actual state of the benthic habitats under anthropogenic influence (despite the declaring of the protected area as marine reserve). The data set represents the logistic, scientific and practical support for including the area in the functioning regime specific for the natural reserves, being the only underwater reserve on the Romanian littoral. With the present data, 2 maps of the habitats and biocenosis in the reserve was realized by transferring the data into GIS format.
