Description
Using a Multiple Opening and Closing Nets and Environmental Sensing System (MOCNESS), zooplankton samples were collected at selected depth intervals in the water column. more

Zooplankton samples were screened for a fixed suite of taxa. Depending on the organism, counts were made of life stage or size class. Sampling was conducted in April-June 2001 and 2002. The general sampling area includes: the continental shelf to the west of the Antarctic Peninsula extending from the northern tip of Adelaide Island to the southern portion of Alexander Island, and Marguerite Bay.
