All species of infauna taken are recorded, together with their relative frequency in relation to the particle size of the sediment. The following communities are distinguished, and their significance discussed: Amphioplus-Ophionephthys, Laevicardium-Codakia, Mellita-Tellina, Encope, Amphioplus-Dosinia, Plagiobrissus-Clypeaster, Venus.
