Abstract:
On the West Coast of Vancouver Island, physical flow features directly impact both primary and secondary producer trophic levels and the coupling between them and the larval fish that prey on them. Primary productivity is high, supported by the advection of nutrients from deep oceanic water onto the shelf. This data set is the first part of a process study in the area and will investigate variability in this transport and the relative importance of new versus regenerated nutrients to primary production in this area. The second part of the process study investigates the physical factors determining zooplankton biomass (secondary productivity) and distribution and thus impacting on the food web transfer from the abundant phytoplankton to harvested species of fish. Size fractionated chlorophyll-a and primary productivity (0.7 um and 5.0um); Nutrients - nitrate, phosphate, and silicic acid; phytoplantkon taxonomy (major groups only) were measured on 9 cruises: April, July, October 1997; May, July, October, 1998; May, July, October 1999 on the west coast of Vancouver Island. Cruise tracks were different on each trip and over 40 stations were sampled each trip.
