Parameters
Abundance Methodology , Biomass Methodology
Abundance: Hauling a Juday net
Samples were taken with Juday nets (diameter of 36 cm; mesh size of 112 μm) from bottom to surface (60-0 m on the shelf, 15-0 m or 10-0 m in the bay).
Samples were fixed by 4% formalin and were processed by counting-weight method. Wet-weight biomass was calculated using average weight of different forms of zooplankton (Petipa, 1957).
