The vertical distribution of zooplankton in the Cape Armitage area
Entry ID: K012_1987_1988_NZ_2

Abstract: The vertical distribution of zooplankton was determined in the Cape Armitage area. A large number of samples were taken by streaming plankton nets at a range of depths over the top 200m. These samples were analysed to determine the vertical stratification of the zooplankton species in relation to the depth profile of ambient light. Vertical haul samples were also taken to compare the zooplankton composition with sampling completed in 1985 to see if the different ice conditions markedly effect the zooplankton community.
