Summary

The data correspond to 6 samplings carried out in an estuary area with a great vessel movement and emptying of urban waste water. Samples were taken in May, July and November 1982, and in January, March and May 1983. 7 stations were established in the bay and 1 outside in a more open area. Data on salinity, temperature, nitrates, phosphates, dissolved oxygen and chlorophyll were also recorded. Haulings were oblique except at the shallow- water stations, where haulings were horizontal.
