Description 
Summary

Data were collected within the framework of multidisciplinary studies aimed at investigating the physical, chemical and biological characteristics of the Adriatic/Ionian basin. Discrete water samples where collected at standard or selected-optical depths with Niskin bottles, after CTD profiling, on three main stations (A1, O2, I1). The samples collected were preserved with a formaline solution and the Phytoplankton counting was performed in the laboratory.
