Planktonic data of the Balearic Sea related to a plankton production study. more

The main objective of this project was to determine the planktonic production in the Balearic Sea during the annual cycle in order to relate it to the catch of the local fishing fleet. For data collection, 8 planktonic-hydrographic campaigns wherre held around the Balearic Islands in different months. Additional samples were taken from commercial fishing vessels in front of Palma bay and in the South and the North West of Mallorca. The zooplankton samples were also used for a PhD thesis on the ichthyoplankton of the Balearic Sea.
