Benthos image data from transect line, Barton Peninsular in 2015/16

As benthic organisms are sensitive to habitual disturbance and affected by the domestic wastes and sediments, these ecological characteristics allow them to be an important factor to measure sea area environment. We selected two monitoring sites and installed two permanent 30m line transects per a site. Then, we obtained the pictures from four quadrats(50cm x 50 cm) at intervals of 10m along lines, recorded the video and collected the representative benthic species. Also, seawater running from sewage outlet and marine sediment sunk on sea bottom were collected in order to measure the possible pollutants in them. An investigation of the effect of sewage caused by human activities on benthic communities
