Datasets usually provide raw data for analysis. This raw data often comes in spreadsheet form, but can be any collection of data, on which analysis can be performed.
Sulphur stable isotope data were collected for the study of food webs and benthic-pelagic coupling in the North Sea. They comprise natural abundance stable isotope measurements of δ34S for 415 individuals from 15 species of fish sampled in 2006. Measurements of δ13C and δ15N for the same individuals were previously published by Jennings and Cogan (2015). A numeric code is included with the present data to allow the δ34S measurements to be matched to the δ13C and δ15N measurements by individual. Trophic level estimates for the same individuals, based on δ15N measurements, are provided in Supplementary Material supporting Jennings and van der Molen (2015).
