The apparatus described in this paper was constructed for the purpose of sampling the zooplankton standing crop in the ocean in a quantitative manner. A meter is described, which will record both the depth and amount of water which a net filters as it is hauled vertically through the water. The meter records on a smoked glass cylinder. The meter is mounted in a brass drum which is positioned in front of the silk filtering section of the net. In front of the meter a long canvas sleeve carries… Expand

A Quantitative Comparison of Two Zooplankton Sampling Methods, a Plankton Trap and a Towed Net, in the Baltic
TLDR
A comparison between a large plankton trap with a capacity of 23 litres and a modern towed net was made in the course of zooplankton production studies in the Baltic, finding that both methods were equally efficient in catching naupliar stages of copepods. Expand
From the Hensen net toward four-dimensional biological oceanography
TLDR
The development of quantitative zooplankton collecting systems began with Hensen, 1887, and was also an era in which many of the fundamental questions about the structure and dynamics of the plankton in the worlds oceans were first posed. Expand
A Closing, High-speed Plankton Catcher for Use in Vertical and Horizontal Towing
A FEATURE common to conventional con ical nets is the speed at which they may be towed one to two or three knots (1 kt. equals 1.85 km./hr.)-which is necessary to safe working of the gear and an undExpand
Contamination in Nansen-type vertical plankton nets and a method to prevent it
Abstract Four ways in which shallow living copepod species can contaminate deep plankton samples collected with a Nansen-type vertical net are discussed. It is concluded that shallow species enterExpand
Methods for the Estimation of Zooplankton Abundance 1
This chapter is intended to outline and compare some of the most commonly employed methods for determining abundance of zooplankton organisms in lakes. I will emphasize the practical aspects of useExpand
Measuring and Sampling
In this chapter we will outline briefly some of the measuring and sampling techniques used at sea to obtain information of interest to ecologists. To evaluate the interactions between organisms andExpand
QUANTITATIVE ZOOPLANKTON SAMPLING WITH THE INDIAN OCEAN STANDARD NET
Summary A comparison is made between plankton net catches from the modified Discovery pattern N70 and the Indian Ocean standard net. There was a significant difference in the estimation of standingExpand
The zooplankton of the inshore waters of Dar es Salaam (Tanzania, S. E. Africa) with observations on reactions to artificial light
TLDR
Almost every major group showed an annual cycle of abundance; greater numbers were recorded either for the entire or part of the period February to August, compared to the period September to November. Expand
THE PELAGIC DISTRIBUTION OF SEA‐BIRDS IN THE WESTERN INDIAN OCEAN
Summary The present paper summarises observations made during the International Indian Ocean Expedition on board the R.R.S.' Discovery, from August to November 1963 and from February to SeptemberExpand
Upwelling in the Southern Benguela Current
Abstract This survey of the southernmost significant upwelling site in the Benguela Current showed that the oceanography is dominated by the seasonal wind cycle of predominant S-E winds in summer andExpand
