Neuston tows were made during 4 juvenile salmonid trawling cruises off coastal Oregon and California, 2000 and 2002. GLOBEC NEP Process StudyEntry ID: neuston_NEP
Abstract: Zooplankton sampling was conducted in conjunction with a juvenile salmonid trawling survey in years 2000 and 2002 off coastal Oregon and California. Sampling was conducted using a neuston net with a 1-m wide by 0.3-m high mouth and 0.333-mm mesh.
Four ship cruises, two each in 2000 and 2002, sampled along 22 cross shelf sections (6 mesoscale and 16 fine scale) having ... overall boundary conditions of 41.5N - 45N and 124.2W - 126.2W.
Data reported at the genus/species level are life stage and abundance.
For detailed sampling methods, see the documentation file that accompanies the data file (access via the Related URL section of this document).
