Abundance and biomass of mesozooplankton collected from 1984-1986 allong the romanian littoral


The Longitudinale 1984-1986 dataset contains zooplankton data collected from May to October 1984-1986 in 14 station allong 2 transect paralel to the romanian littoral. Zooplankton sampling was undertaken at 14 stations where samples were collected using a Juday closing net in the 0-10, 10-20, 20-30 and 30-40 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.
