Description
The national monitoring program was initiated by the Swedish Environmental Protection Agency and is now financed by the Swedish Agency for Marine and Water Management. Monitoring is performed by Stockholm University, Umeå University, Swedish Meteorological and Hydrological Institute and Gothenburg University. Data are stored in the Swedish Ocean Archive (SHARK) by the Swedish Meteorological and Hydrological Institute (SMHI). more

Data should be sampled and analyzed according to the HELCOM COMBINE Manual - Part C Annex C7 Mesozooplankton (https://helcom.fi/media/publications/Guidelines-for-monitoring-of-mesozooplankton.pdf). However, deviations from the manual might occur. Information about the program and the methods are available in Swedish at the website of Swedish Agency for Marine and Water Management, https://www.havochvatten.se/vagledning-foreskrifter-och-lagar/vagledningar/ovriga-vagledningar/undersokningstyper-for-miljoovervakning/undersokningstyper/djurplankton-trend--och-omradesovervakning.html Sampling Methods Samples are taken with vertical hauls using a WP-2 net. The samples are preserved and subsequently analyzed using microscopy.
