Description
The POHJE database includes data on benthic macrofauna, covering the Finnish coastal areas as well as the offshore areas of the Baltic Sea. The quantitative data mainly stem from the Finnish national monitoring program and statutory monitoring programs, but also data from surveys and research projects are included. In total the database contain aproximately 100 000 quantitative records including developmental stages, with a time span from 1965 to present. The database is regularly maintained and data is added continuously.
