Description 
Summary

Mesozooplankton data has been sampled with two types of vertically hauled nets- Juday net (mesh size 0.16 mm) in 1960-1998 and WP-2 net (mesh size 0.10 mm) since 1993 thus for five years some of the stations were sampled with both nets. Sampling according to HELCOM BMP requirements was started in 1993. Sampling in the Baltic Sea was fulfilled in 1960-1994 with Juday net and in 1993-1994 with WP-2 net. Using a plastic hose some coastal stations were sampled in 1999.
