Estimation of Micro-zooplankton (MZ) Abundance and Biomass, Summer 2010 (B55)

Micro-zooplankton (MZ) are responsible for most of the grazing on phytoplankton in the sea and are an important link in the food chain between phytoplankton and zooplankton, which are food for zooplanktivorous fish which support top predators. This dataset contains summer data on standing stocks of MZ and their grazing activities. Data were collected from 18 June 2010 through 12 July 2010.
