This dataset contains depth profiles of the abundance of groups of plankton as cells per millilitre, measured using flow cytometry from the long-term sampling station, E1 (50 2.05'N; 4 22.5'W) situated off the south-west coast of England, United Kingdom, from 2014 to 2017. The groups quantified are divided into phytoplankton and heterotrophs. Phytoplankton groups quantified are: Synechococcus sp. (cyanobacteria) (Syn), picoeukaryotes (smaller than 2 µm) (Peuk), cryptophytes (Crypto), coccolithophores (Cocco), small dinoflagellates (<20 µm) (Dino), Phaeocystis sp. (Pcystis) and nanoeukaryotes (Neuk) not already mentioned (2-20 µm). Heterotrophs quantified are: bacteria with relatively high nucleic acid content (HNA) and bacteria with relatively low DNA (LNA). Samples were collected and analysed from 2, 10, 20, 30, 40 and 60 m depths.
