Abstract The table of Mnemiopsis leidyi alien species abundance and biomass includes 24 available datasets with the original values (g/m3; ind/m3) from the Black Sea Database created in framework of the NATO SfP-971818 ODBMS Black Sea Project http://sfp1.ims.metu.edu.tr/ODBMSDB/ and Bulgarian National Monitoring Programme http://bgodc.io-bas.bg/documents/
Being an invasive species but not only alien Mnemiopsis affects the ecosystem even with its presence in the environment. The publications of Vinogradov et al., 2005 and Shiganova et al., 2014 took thresholds for Good Environmental Status (GES) < 4g/m3 (120 g/m2 ) and <5 ind/m3 respectively.
In concentration above these thresholds the species affects the ecosystem.
The data modifications of Product 1 do not allow correct assessment of this impact on the ecosystem.

Limited: The product fails in most aspects to meet the objectives but meet some.

This EMODnet BlackSea Checkpoint data product is result of a stress test so called "challenge" specified by the call for tenders No MARE/2014/09 to determine how well the input data from the observing and monitoring systems existing at the sea basin scale fit the user requirements stated by the "challenge" partners to develop it (Data Product Specifications). The information contained in the data products and in the descriptions (metadata) of the input data and the data products making use of them is believed to be trustworthy. However its completeness, consistency, accuracy and usability cannot be guaranteed. Whilst every effort has been made to ensure its reliability within the limits of present knowledge, no responsibility can be accepted by those involved in its compilation or publication for any consequential loss or damage arising from its use.
