Summary
Abstract: Plankton and water was sampled from a site at Cape Bird and the parameters measured include: salinity, light, temperature, biomass of zooplankton and phytoplankton, species identification of zooplankton and phytoplankton and chlorophyll concentration. Light and temperature readings were taken at 0m (air), 2cm (just under the surface), 10m, 50m, 125m and 200m. Water was sampled at 0, 10, 50, 125 ... View entire text
