Abstract The table of Mnemiopsis leidyi alien species abundance and biomass includes 23 available datasets 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/
The data were submitted on Quality assurance (detection of stations with different names but the same geographic location; detection of stations with the same name but with different geographic locations).
Afterward:
- The values of stations with different names and the same geographic location were averaged.
- Stations with the same name but in different geographic locations were renamed.
- The units were recalculated from ind/m3 and g/m3 to ind/m2 and g/m2 for more representative spatial surface performance.

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.
