Details of Zooplankton samples from Eastern tropical Atlantic


Dataset identification

Title of datasetZooplankton samples from Eastern tropical Atlantic
Narrative summary of datasetTo help multifrequency acoustic data validation, zooplankton samples were acquired near each PIRATA buoy during FR26 survey. Oblique tows were conducted with bongo nets (300 µm mesh), towed between on average 200 m depth and the sea surface. A flowmeter (KC Denmark 23.090) mounted in the mouth of the net was used to measure seawater filtered during the tow. Samples were fixed in 4% formaldehyde buffered with borax for laboratory analysis and stored at -20°C. Mean filtered water volume was 175m3Important Note: This submission has been initially submitted to SEA scieNtific Open data Edition (SEANOE) publication service and received the recorded DOI. The metadata elements have been further processed (refined) in EMODnet Ingestion Service in order to conform with the Data Submission Service specifications.
