Abstract
    This paper described the results of a survey of the North Sea and north Atlantic waters adjacent to the Orkney and Shetland Island, from 23 May to 9 June, 1973, using simultaneous tows of the prototype Undulating Oceanographic Recorder (UOR) and the Continuous Plankton Recorder (CPR). The UOR sampled plankton and measured salinity and temp over its undulation profile from 5 to 65 m in depth. The CPR samples plankton at a fixed depth of 10 m. Three principal water masses were identified, each with a characteristic plankton community.
