Description
Tara expeditions sampled the world’s oceans with standardized protocols, putting an exceptional effort into sampling plankton diversity across a large size range, using a combination of water samples and net tows. The efforts to explore the genomic diversity of plankton, through metabarcoding and metagenomics, have led to well publicized papers and have made the renown of Tara. While a similar extensive effort has been put on imaging, the datasets are not public yet. In a limited number of stations, in addition to the usual 5μm -> ~5cm Tara sampling strategy, Bongo net samples were taken during the day and during the night, at the same station; this is the content of this dataset. Using a 300µm mesh net, it cover organisms from 300µm to ~3cm more

Bongo net (300μm mesh) hauled vertically from 500m depth to the surface, once during the day, and once during the night. Sample preserved in 4% buffered formalin and stored over the long term at the Centre de Collections Planctoniques de Villefranche (CCPv). Sample scanned on a ZooScan, images processed with ZooProcess and sorted taxonomically on EcoTaxa, within the Plateforme d'Imagerie Quantitative de Villefranche (PIQv). The PIQv and CCPv platforms are part of EMBRC-France, a national Research Infrastructure supported by ANR, under the reference ANR-10-INSB-02.
