Dataset that contains the presence of the echinoid species Ctenocidaris nutrix reported on the Kerguelen Plateau (63/81W; -46/-56S) during the campaigns of the RV Marion Dufresne MD03 1974 & MD04 1975, POKER 2 (2010) campaigns and the program PROTEKER (2013, 2014, 2015).
Ctenocidaris nutrix (Thomson 1876) is a broad range species, distributed from -70.5W to 143.7E and -76.13 to -47.18S in the Southern Ocean. The species is mainly found around the Kerguelen Plateau, near Weddel Sea and Scotia Ridge. The species is known from littoral waters down to 800m. It is a carnivorous and direct developer species that breeds its youngs (David et al. 2005). Ctenocidaris nutrix is considered as an indicator species of Vulnerable Marine Ecosystems (VME) by the CCAMLR.
