Summary
Abstract: This collection includes data collected during two Hudson cruises, one between
July 29 to August 3, 1980 and the second between August 7 to August 14, 1983

Plankton samples were collected using the BIONESS sampler equipped with 243u
mesh nets. Profiles were from the bottom to the surface. The samples collected
were preserved in 4% formaldehyde and later analysed down to species for
Copepoda and genus for all other classes and phyla. A wet weight for each group
was also measured. Associated chlorophyll, phaeophytin and nutrient data are
available.The purpose of this study was to look at the vertical distribution of
all major species of zooplankton in Baffin Bay and Davis Strait, with
particular emphasis on chaetognaths and copepods (Calanus species and their
copepodites in particular) using fine-scale biological samples and simultaneous
temperature and salinity data.
