Plankton was sampled at a single site (S 77o00.725’; E 162o 53.046’) between 27 Nov 2009 - 01 Dec 2009 about 1 km to the south of Granite Harbour Camp during the 09-10 season to determine if there is a different larval community at different depths. Plankton was sampled at four depths (25, 50, 75, and 100 m) in random order. A CTD probe produced a depth profile of salinity, temperature and chlorophyll to relate to the depth distribution of the larvae. Three replicate samples were taken at each depth and sorted fresh.
These data are believed to be logically consistent, though no tests were performed.
