Description 
Summary

Includes data obtained in the course of an oceanographic cruise carried out in the waters of the Republic of Gabon on board the R/V 'Coornide de Saavedra', with the purpose of evaluating the oceanic fishery resources of the area. The information covers the continental shelf down to a depth of 200m. 24 oceanographic stations were established, and samples were taken down to the standard depths for the determination of the basic oceanographic parameters and nutrients, as well as 14 oceanic hauls for the identification of stocks.
