Hinkley Point 'B' data set; 1981 - 2006

The data from the Hinkley Point sampling include the main abundance data for fish and macrocrustaceans at Hinkley Point in the Bristol Channel, collected between January 1981 and April 2006. Each monthly sample was collected using the same effort and method. Thus the time series reflects real change in abundance at one locality through time.
