Abundance and biomass of mesozooplankton from the S-R02 cruise in the western part of the Black Sea in September 2008


The SESAME dataset contains mesozooplankton data collected during September 2008 in the North-West Black Sea (between 44°46' N and 42°29'N latitude and 28°64'E and 30°59'E longitude). Mesozooplankton sampling was undertaken at 9 stations where samples were collected using a Juday net in the 0-10, 10-25, 25-50, 50-100, 100-150, 150-200 m layer. The dataset includes 30 samples analysed for mesozooplankton species composition, species abundance and total biomass.Sampling volume was estimated by multiplying the mouth area with the wire length.The Taxon-specific mesozooplankton abundance sample or aliquots were analyzed under the binocular microscope. Taxonomic identification was done according to Morduhai-Boltovskii et al. 1968.Total biomass was estimated using a tabel with wet weight for each species an stage (Petipa method).
