This data was collected to determine whether the composition and the abundance of species assemblages changes with depth and along a distance from shore gradient. The species assemblage on offshore gas platforms in the Dutch part of the North Sea was inventoried using ROV inspection footage. The dataset contains observations of 11 species on 5 of these platforms.
