Summary
Abstract: This dataset will serve to describe the overwintering dynamics of zooplankton in Franklin bay, southern Beaufort Sea. The CASES (Canadian Arctic Shelf Exchange Study) overwintering station was sampled at weekly intervals from 9 December 2003 to 29 May 2004. Zooplankton were collected with a multi sampler Hydrobios® equipped with nine nets of 200 μm mesh size each that was deployed from the ... View entire text

Purpose: To assess arctic zooplankton composition and vertical distribution in Franklin Bay, southern Beaufort Sea.

Quality ATTRIBUTE ACCURACY REPORT: The animals counts were done according to convention: sorting under a stereo microscope after sample splitting and sieving. The sample preserved in a 4% buffered formalin in seawater was sieved through 150 and 1000 μm mesh sieves. Accuracy is unknown. The nets can be subject to clogging by diatom chains and gelatinous zooplankton, but such events are unlikely during the ... View entire text
