Latest version published by Hellenic Center for Marine Research on Jul 11, 2016 Hellenic Center for Marine Research

This is a historical dataset that was published in 1939 by Ad. Steuer and concerns of the faunistic report on the Sipunculoidea, Phoronidea, Brachiopoda, Enteropneusta and Acrania collected during the floristical and faunistical survey of Adolf Steuer on the coasts near Alexandria mainly with the vessel “El Hoot”. This dataset covers the time span of 1/4/1933 to 17/11/1933 and contains occurrence data of Sipunculoidea, Phoronidea, Brachiopoda, Enteropneusta and Acrania in the coasts of Alexandria, Egypt. The digitization of this dataset was done by LifewatchGreece team.

Sampling Methods

This dataset is only a part from a large faunistical expedition (http://ipt.medobis.eu/resource?r=egyptexpeditionpreliminaryrepor) that took place in the coasts near Alexandria. The samples were collected by A. Steuer. For bottom samples almost exclusively a dredge with 20x70 cm opening was used. A single catch was made in a depth of 20 m with a large otter trawl in the eastern part of the Bay of Abukir. In general, the motor-launch of the Marine Laboratory "El Hoot" was used for dredging and a rowing boat in shallow water. All excursions were one-day trips. For planktonic samples only medium sized nets with celluloid buckets with gauze bottom were available. After the expedition, taxonomic identification of the samples was done by specialists. The results of this expedition were published in separate for each taxonomic group volumes. Thus, sampling methods were described in a preliminary report by A. Steuer.

Study Extent This digitized historical dataset is based on a faunistic report compiled from the expedition by the Fisheries Research Directorate in fishery grounds near Alexandria at 1933.
