Dataset is not complete due to a lack of knowledge of information on Southern Ocean ctenophores, but will be useful for identification of needed research areas. Planktonic ctenophores can be taken by tow net or dip net. It is advantageous to collect specimens at night, when the animals are more abundant near the surface. Benthic ctenophores can be collected by divers using jars to capture specimens. This method can also be used for pelagic species. This dataset is a summary of the available data.
The information presented in temporal and spatial coverage is approximate only.
