Description 
Summary

The population dynamics of cockles were monitored in 18 plots in the Eastern Scheldt and 16 plots in the Western Scheldt. Sampling of these plots took place between 1991 and 2007; 5 times a year until 1995 and 3 times a year after 1995. The aim of these surveys was to collect data on changes in growth, survival, reproduction and condition of cockles over time.
