Description 
Summary

The collection contains information on zooplankton collected from the surface down to 1000m at stations situated at all the islands. Presently available are samples from Tenerife and Hierro, although in the current and following years we hope to use different kinds of nets at the rest of the islands. The net used was WP-2. Also data on the qualitative composition of the different bathymetric strata were obtained, and at the same time nictimeral migrations were analyzed while fishing by day and by night.
