Mesozooplankton population and biomass in the eastern Bering Sea - MOCNESS data - Preliminary

In order to contribute to the assessment of the state and variability of the species composition, abundance and biomass of the populations forming the ecosystem of the Eastern Bering Sea Shelf and to estimate population trends, approximately 860 zooplankton samples were collected and processed during the six cruises of the Bering Sea Ecosystem Study-Bering Sea Integrated Ecosystem Research Program (BEST-BSIERP). BEST-BSIERP together are the Bering Sea project. This data set consists of a spreadsheet for the MOCNESS net system of the analysis of the resultant data collected over the three year period. This data set contains data from the HLY-08-02, HLY-08-03, HLY-09-02, KN195-10, TN249, and TN250 cruises. Note: These data were updated on 2012 December 22
