This report describes the acoustic and other complementary data gathered during an experiment carried from May 23rd to July 13th in the water tank at the IPMA-EPPO (Estação Piloto de Piscicultura de Olhão ), Olhão, in the framework of the SEAOX project (PTDC/EEIPRO/2598/2014). The tank bottom is covered by seagrasses, particularly Cymodocea nodosa and Zostera marina. The objective of this experiment was to complement that data set gathered in July 2016 and October 2016. The recorded acoustic data is ambient noise generated by the water pumps. Simultaneously with acoustic data, temperature, salinity and dissolved O2 data were measured by a multiparameter probe (CTD). This report also includes data recorded by the atmospheric station installed at the EPPO and dissolved O2 optode data measured by the EPPO team at two times per day. The report presents the experimental setup, the acoustic and complementary environmental data.
