Abundance and biomass of zooplankton collected from 1981 to 1982 in front of the Romanian Danube Delta


The Platforma 1981-1982 dataset contains zooplankton data collected allong 3 transect in front of the RomanianDanube Delta. Zooplankton sampling was undertaken at 10 stations where samples were collected 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.
