Abundance of cephalopods, decapods and gelatinous organisms through the water column and diel patterns in the western Mediterranean Sea in winter and summer


This file contains data on numerical abundance of micronekton organisms, mostly decapods, cephalopods, and cnidarians collected in winter (December 2009) and summer (July 2010) in the Balearic Islands region. A relatively small area was repeatedly sampled throughout the day. Samples were obtained by means of a double-warp modified commercial mid-water trawl, with standard pelagic trawl doors (otter boards) and graded-mesh netting to the cod-end (10 mm). Hauls were horizontal and lasted between 30 min and 1 hour, and the depth of the net was controlled by a SCANMAR system. Samples were identified on board or frozen for a later identification in the laboratory. These data were obtained within the project: "Estructura y dinámica del ecosistema bentopelágico de talud en dos zonas oligotróficas del Mediterráneo: una aproximación multidisciplinar y a distintas escalas temporales en las Islas Baleares", financed by the Spanish Ministerio de Ciencia e Innovación CTM2007-65844-C03.
