Description 
Summary

The KEYCOP-Phyto dataset is based on samples collected at 9 stations (Autumn 1999) and at 6 stations (early Spring 2000) in the North Aegean Sea. Samples were collected from standard depths (2, 10, 20, 50, 75, 100m) in the euphotic zone. The dataset includes 105 samples of chlorophyll, 84 samples of phytoplankton species composition and abundance and 66 samples of primary production.
