Abstract
    The ‘International Workshop on Oceanographic Biological and Chemical Datamanagement’ held in Hamburg (Germany), 1996, produced a listing of suggested metadata for plankton data management. In the eight years that followed this meeting, the efforts and experiences of adding plankton tows to the World Ocean Database profile database made it clear that there was more to building a useable plankton database than just putting plankton data and metadata into a database.
