Zooplankton abundance Methodology
Zooplankton abundance: Zooplankton WP2 net (OGS)
Zooplankton are collected by vertical hauls from 15 m to the surface using a WP2 net with 200 ┬Ám mesh, 56 cm diameter. Samples were fixed with Ca(HCO3)2-buffered formaldehyde (2-4% final concentration) for determination of species abundance and composition. Individuals were sorted and counted under binocular microscope.
