Description
The Observatoire of Villefranche sur Mer supports the daily sampling of zooplankton since 1966 at a time series station located at the entrancy of the Bay of Villefranche sur Mer. Samples were collected by a vertical tow from bottom to surface (75-0 m), using a WP2 net. Zooplankton abundance was counted by specialist at OOV under microscopes more

Samples were collected by a vertical tow from bottom to surface (75-0 m), using a WP2 net: 220µm of mesh, opening: 0.25m². Zooplankton abundance was counted by specialist at OOV under microscopes. The sampling site is located at the mouth of the Bay over a bathymetry of 80m and is thus open to the Ligurian Sea.
