Summer Microzooplankton in the Bering Sea

This dataset contains Micro-zooplankton (MZ) grazing on phytoplankton estimations during the summer cruise (HLY0803) at 21 stations in the SouthEastern (SE) Bering Sea. A modified 2-point dilution method (Landry 1993, Strom et al. 2006, Strom and Fredrickson 2008) was used to estimate phytoplankton growth, MZ grazing and the fraction of phytoplankton daily production removed by MZ grazing. Chlorophyll was measured as a proxy for phytoplankton biomass. Water samples for the determination of MZ abundance, biomass and composition were collected in association with the dilution experiments and at additional selected stations and preserved with 10% (final concentration) acid Lugol's solution in amber glass bottles.
