Sampling protocol for monitoring of non-indigenous species in selected Danish harbours
MetadataShow full item record
The sampling protocol is a product of the MONIS 4 project, or in full “Monitoring of non-indigenous species in selected Danish harbours”. Sampling will take place using a broad range of methods, both conventional sampling methods and sampling of water and subsequent analyses of DNA remains of a total of 20 species on the Danish non-indigenous target species list. Groups of organisms covered by this study include: (1) phytoplankton, (2) zooplankton, (3) softbottom com- munities (infauna and epifauna), (4) hardbottom communities (both flora and fauna), as well as (5) fish. The results of this comprehensive sampling effort in 16 Danish harbours is planned to be reported by Summer 2018. Data will after publication of the report be submitted to relevant data repositories.
