NOGAP B2; Zooplankton Data from the Canadian Beaufort Sea Shelf, 1986Entry ID: ArcOD_2006P9
Abstract: Zooplankton was collected from the Canadian Beaufort Sea shelf in May, (ice on), and July to September (open water) of 1986. In May, four Wisconsin net samples were collected from two stations. In July to September, 89, 88 and 181 net samples were collected with neuston, 85 µm bongo and 500 µm bongo gear, respectively, from 49 stations. Neuston gear sampled at the water surface while other gear ... sampled the water column. There were 247 taxonomic identifications from 30 taxonomic groups (phyla, classes, orders or suborders). The resulting database consists of 11091 data rows and is app. 6MB in size. Copepods predominated a total catch of 33.66 million specimens. Wet and dry biomass data by taxonomic group are given for neuston and 500 µm bongo net samples. Respective maximum wet and dry sample biomass for neuston samples was 44.15 and 5.52 g/100 m3 water filtered, and for bongo samples, 123.72 and 36.00 g/100m3. Length-frequency and sample caloric density data are given respectively, for copepod species captured in 23 samples, and nine samples, from 500 µm bongo nets.
Purpose: To assess species composition, abundance, distribution and biomass of zooplankton across the Canadian Beaufort

Quality Quality assurance followed standard Manchester laboratory practice
described by Huntamer (1986). Method blanks, matrix spikes,
duplicates, and surrogate compound spikes (for organic analyses) were
included in the quality assurance program. All data met EPA Contract
Laboratory Program criteria with the following exceptions: ... The
fourteen day holding time for volatile organics analysis was exceeded
by seven days and the results for antimony and a resin acid
(neoabietic acid) are suspect.
The laboratory data were reviewed and data qualifiers were added as
appropriate. The data qualifiers used were defined as follows:
B-Also detected in laboratory blank.
U-Not detected. Value is the detection limit.
Users of these data should bear in mind that the sediments were
collected in the vicinity of potential pollutant sources. Results for
antimony and neoabietic acid are suspect.
All data entered in the database were reviewed for data entry errors.
All detected errors were corrected.
