Summary
Abstract: Zooplankton species abundance and biomass data collected from WP2 nets 2001-2002 in the Gulf of Alaska as part of the Gulf of Alaska Long-Term Observation Program. A WP-2 net fitted with a 253-μm mesh net was deployed vertically to a depth of 100-m depth. The volume of water filtered by the net was estimated using flow meters. All data were collected onboard the F/V Great Pacific along the coastal waters of the Gulf of Alaska and in Shelikof Strait, AK. Transects sampled during the survey were perpendicular to shore and extended from nearshore across the continental shelf to oceanic waters beyond the 200-m shelf break.
