Description 
Summary

In 1990, an international experiment was carried out, under the guidance of ICES, in order to study the water masses flowing into and out of the Baltic and the North Sea through the Baltic Straits. Within the scope of this project, DAE IEP was engaged in zooplankton control. It was done twice at six sampling stations by means of vertical hauls from the bottom to the surface. The data set contains species composition, abundance for each sampling recalculated for 1 m**3, as well as the source data stored as files in the computer database.
