Summary
Abstract: A study of zooplankton from 10 stations located in nearshore waters adjacent to two catchments (one near-pristine and the other intensely farmed) of the Great Barrier Reef.
CTD casts were made near the bottom at each station for salinity and temperature data. Water samples for chlorophyll a were made. Environmental variables include day and night, location and date (can allotcate season, year).
