Zoobenthos data from upper Frobisher Bay, 1967-1973

Data on marine zoobenthic invertebrates were obtained from samples collected from 1967 to 1973 by grab, trawl, and dredge in depths of water of 25 to 90 m in an area of 1.2 km2 located in upper Frobisher Bay, southern Baffin Island. Trawls and dredges were taken to measure the epifauna. Samples of substrate were collected when grab samples were taken. A Petterson grab was used to collect samples. Trawls were done with large and small otter trawls, 4 m and 2.5 m in width respectively. Results are presented in tabular form and consist of density and biomass of species collected by grab, species representation and biomass of species collected by trawl and dredge, and values of substances in the substrate. Associated collecting data together with some data on benthic fish and macrophytes are included.
