TN249 Microzooplankton Biomass and Composition

Microzooplankton abundance, biomass and general community and size composition were determined in whole seawater samples after samples collected at sea were returned to the laboratory. Data from the R/V Thompson TN249 long spring cruise are reported, along with a summary table of total microzooplankton biomass for 2008, 2009 and 2010 Bering Sea Ecosystem Study-Bering Sea Integrated Ecosystem Research Program (BEST-BSIERP) long spring cruises. BEST-BSIERP together are the Bering Sea project. These data are from initial water samples collected for mesozooplankton and dilution grazing assays. Note: The dataset was updated with additional stations on Aug 25, 2011
