Abundance and biomass of mesozooplankton in the eastern Mediterranean Sea in March and April 2008 during SES_GR1

DOI

The dataset is based on samples taken during March-April 2008 in Libyan Sea, in Southern Aegean Sea and in Northern Aegean Sea. Sampling volume was estimated by the net mouth surface and the towing distance for WP-2. Taxon-specific mesozooplankton abundance and total abundance: The sample was split on board in two halves by using the beaker approach. The first sub-sample was immediately fixed and preserved in a seawater formalin solution containing about 4% buffered formaldehyde to allow the determination of species composition abundance. Pipette for the subsamples used in the taxonomic analysis of zooplankton under binocular microscope.
