Files under embargo

Reason: These files can be used to control and/or improve the statistical analysis underlying the report of Highland Statistics and Deltares on potential effects of plastics from MSC Zoe on protected species from the Wadden Sea and coastal Dutch North Sea. Files contain data that are available in public databases of Wageningen Marine Research, NIOZ, SOVON and Rijkswaterstaat. The present files are in a frozen state and are no longer maintained in synchrony with the databases they have been derived from. Anybody wanting access to the files for purposes of interacting with the analysis of MSC Zoe effects will be granted access. If you want to use the data for other purposes, please contact the data providers directly for an up-to-date version.
