Abstract : The report presents sampling data on the infauna organisms in the Bay. Eleven stations were established in three project sites and four disposal areas. Five sampling periods over a period of one year were used to represent conditions ranging from high fresh water inflow in the winter to the dry period in late summer. In addition to the taxonomy, sediment analysis included temperature, pH, total sulfides, grain-size distribution and heavy metals - Cu, Cd, Zn, Pb and Hg. Water sample analysis included temperature, salinity, dissolved oxygen, pH, total sulfides and optical turbidity.
