Benthic fauna in soft sediments from the Barents and Pechora Seas, supplement to: Andrade, Hector; Renaud, Paul E; Wlodarska-Kowalczuk, Maria; Pardus, Joanna; Carroll, Michael L; Cochrane, Sabine K J; Dahle, Salve; Palerud, Rune (2017): Benthic fauna in soft sediments from the Barents and Pechora Seas. Metadata and database from Akvaplan-niva AS research expeditions, from 1992-2005. Akvaplan-niva Rapport, APN-6770-001, 14 pp

Benthic infaunal abundance data from 138 stations in the Barents Sea and surrounding waters are provided in a public database. All samples were collected with a 0.1 m2 van Veen grab and identification was carried out by professional taxonomists. Most abundance data are presented at the species level.
