Estimation of Micro-zooplankton (MZ) Abundance and Biomass, Summer 2008 (B55)


Micro-zooplankton (MZ) are responsible for most of the grazing on phytoplankton in the sea and are an important link in the food chain between phytoplankton and zooplankton, which are food for zooplanktivorous fish which support top predators. This dataset provides summer data on standing stocks of MZ and their grazing activities. A key goal was to determine how the MZ link in Bering Sea food webs is influenced by climate-induced changes in physical forcing.
