Raw count data of scavengers observed on baited free fall landers during food fall studies in the Norwegian Sea during HEINCKE cruise HE518


To investigate scavenging communities associated with carcasses of animals from the water column, we performed experimental food fall studies. We deployed baited camera landers with squid (Illex coindetii), jellyfish (Periphylla periphylla) and fish (Scomber scombrus) for 9-25 hours at 1360-1440 m in the Southern Norwegian Sea. The dataset includes all raw count data of scavengers on the food falls sorted by taxon based on image analysis annoated using ImageJ with the Cell Counter plugin and stored long-term in BIIGLE. Scavengers included lysianassid amphipods (mainly Eurythenes gryllus), ophiuroids, decapod shrimp (Bythocaris spp.) as well as Lycodes frigidus (probably a secondary consumer).
