Summary

Data from 5 different cruises between March 1998 and May 2000 as part of the IEO projects CAREVA, JUREVA, SAREVA, and SEAMAR, Zooplankton sampling was carried out with nets of 150um, 200um, 250um; Bongo nets were used during all cruises. Maximum depth sampling was variable between surveys (100-250 m). Final analysis of SEAMAR biomass (dry and wet weight) was carried on fractionated samples: <500 um, 500um - 1mm, 2-5mm and >5mm.
