Mesozooplankton average length during Professor Vodyanitskiy cruise PV21, Part I


Mesozooplankton was sampled by open-closing JUDAY net with a 36 cm ring diameter and mesh size of 125 µm. The open-closing mechanism used was the Nansen mechanical lock system allowing nets to be vertically towed through depths in 0-100 m layer. Depth of tow was evaluated by wire paid out and the angle of wire inclination. The 10-20 ml samples were preserved in 3-4% buffered formaldehyde and processed on return to the laboratory. All of copepods were identified to genus level, other taxanomic groups - to type, class, order and family levels.
