Description

The data has been collected during the Nansen Legacy Seasonal Study Q3 5th to 27th August 2019 on research vessel RV Kronprins Haakon (toktnummer 2019706), along a transect from 76N to 82N east of Svalbard. The dataset contains mesozooplankton abundance (ind/m3). It has been sampled using a MultiNet Midi at 5 distinct depths. Small mesozooplankton were collected with a mesh-size 64 µm and large mesozooplankton were collected with a mesh-size 180 µm. All specimens are identified to the lowest taxonomical level and the abundance is given for a specific species and stage or size group.
