The surveys were taken at a depth of 5m at fixed stations within 5km of the coast of the Maltese Islands. Samples of biota were taken from the sea bed.
The survey was conducted at 26 stations in the coastal waters of the Maltese Islands. Physicochemical parameters were measured at monthly intervals over the period between 30th May 2012 and 24th July 2013. Measurements were made only at a depth of 5m from the surface. All parameters were measured using a multi-parametric probe. The multiparametric probe used was the YSI 6820 V2-1, equipped with a data display and logging system YSI 650 MDS. This probe has one optical port, conductivity/temperature port, Rapid Pulse DO port, pH/ORP port, and 3 ISE ports.
