Description
Copepoda species list, zooplankton densities and measurement of environmental variables at Gazi, Malindi and Lamu sampled between March and December 1992. The data were digitized by VLIZ from the original report: Osore, M. K. W. (1994). A study of the zooplankton of Gazi Bay, Kenya and the adjecent waters: community structure and seasonal variation. MSc Thesis. Universiteit Gent: Ghent. 112 pp. more

Zooplankton was sampled using a Bongo net at three stations in Gazi Bay between March 1990 and February 1992. A total of 114 samples were collected alongside environmental variables of temperature, salinity, dissolved oxygen, pH and transparency. Additional samples were collected on three transects off the Kenyan coast between 19th November and 5th December 1992.
