Description 
Summary

Monitoring of netzooplankton communities at 17 stations in relation to the impact of mucilaginous aggregates on the Northern Adriatic Ecosystem. At each station environmental parameters are measured down the water column and samples are collected by vertical hauls from bottom to surface with net WP-2 for netzooplankton analyses. The netzooplankton data were collected during 9 cruises from March to October 1990, 6 cruises from June to November 1991 and 9 cruises from March to November 1992. Determination for dry weight and ash free dry weight with Love-Grove (1966) method for all stations.
