Zooplankton net sample data collected on James Clark Ross cruise JR58, 2001


Zooplankton data collected from 15 net hauls on James Clark Ross cruise JR58. Data relate mainly to krill and salps that entered the net during hauls where TUBA data were collected. Raw data held in Excel spreadsheets and include krill length photos. Plankton samples taken from nets have been collected. These are presently stored at BAS in the Marine Specimen Store. Analysis of these samples has been undertaken and samples should be retained for 5 years from completion of project and then assessed in light of other plankton datasets held. Nets were used to collect samples of zooplankton and micromekton.
