Abstract

Macrofaunal abundance and biomass data from 0.1 m2 sediment samples collected from four subtidal sites around Plymouth between May 2008 and September 2010. The sites sampled were Cawsand (50 19.81' N, 04 11.50' W), Hilmars Box (50 13.30' N, 04 11.40' W), Rame (50 17.75' N, 04 16.00' W) and Eddystone (50 11.54' N, 04 16.89' W). The entire data set has not yet been fully identified and contains the abundance and biomass data for samples analysed as at December 2012.
