The free-living marine nematodes of San Antonio Bay dataset is based on sediment samples collected in February 2009 during the doctoral thesis of the Dr. Gabriela Villares and Virginia Lo Russo. A total of 36 samples have been taken at three locations in the San Antonio Bay, Santa Cruz Province, Argentina on the coastal littoral at three tidal levels. This presents a unique and important collection for the nematode benthic biodiversity assessment as this area remains one of the least known regions in Patagonia. In total 7,743 specimens of free-living marine nematodes belonging to 2 classes, 8 orders, 37 families, 94 genera and 140 species were collected. The San Antonio city site presented a very high species richness.
