Data Quality Statement:
This data was originally collected by Professor Gerald Sargent of the University of Queensland in Australia. Professor Sargent visited the UK to conduct these studies on two separate occasions in 1983 and 1987. The results of his surveys - along with some corresponding information - were stored in the archives of the Freshwater Biological Association. In 2015 they were digitised using a high resolution scanner, uploaded to the FBA's digital archive, and published.
