Description 
Summary

The project objective is to follow long-term trends in phytoplankton production. The phytoplankton production has been monitored at three sampling sites; F9 in the Bothnian Bay and at NB1 (coastal) & US5B in the Bothnian Sea. The sampling was made bi-weekly during the period May-September. During the rest of the year the samplings were made once a month. The last years sampling has been reduced. Data from simultaneous sampling for water physics/chemistry are stored at the Swedish Meteorological and Hydrological Institute, SMHI.
