Description 
Summary

Plankton data were collected in order to study horizontal and vertical distribution plankton biomass and communities related to the hydrology of the area. Zooplankton total density and species composition was studied in discrete layers from the sea surface to bottom (1986-1987) or from the sea surface to 300m (1991 to 1992).
