Description
Copepods are numerically dominant and major contributors to the zooplankton biomass in the coastal upwelling zone of the eastern South Pacific. This data set comprises the majority of planktonic species of copepods found in the upwelling zone off Northern Chile and Central/southern Chile. more

Copepods are numerically dominant and major contributors to the zooplankton biomass in the coastal upwelling zone of the eastern South Pacific. This data set comprises the majority of planktonic species of copepods found in the upwelling zone off Northern Chile and Central/southern Chile. This upwelling zone is known as a highly productive region sustaining large fisheries of small pelagic, large pelagic and demersal fishes. These copepods may be one of the key secondary producers supporting the fish populations and channeling phytoplankton C and N to the whole Large Marine Ecosystem of the Humboldt Current. Additional Information: The notes column includes the following fields from the original dataset ordered from left to right: typeofcollectingevent, collectingevent, station, and dayornight. These fields are defined as follows. Typeofcollectingevent: specifies sampling gear. Collectingevent: the name of the oceanographic cruise. Station: refers to the sampling station whose code depends on the cruise. Dayornight: refers to either a daylight condition or nighttime condition.
