Abundance and biomass of zooplankton from the Romanian littoral collected in April, May and June 1997

DOI

The SHELF 1997 dataset contains zooplankton data collected in April, May and June 1997 5 transect in front of the Romanian littoral . Zooplankton sampling was undertaken using a Juday closing net in the 0-10, 10-25, and 25-50m layer (depending also on the water masses). The dataset includes samples analysed for mesozooplankton species composition and abundance.Sampling volume was estimated by multiplying the mouth area with the wire length. Taxon-specific mesozooplankton abundance was count under microscope. Total abundance is the sum of the counted individuals. Total biomass Fodder, Rotifera , Ctenophora and Noctiluca was estimated using a tabel with wet weight for each species an stage.
