A meso-scale oceanographic grid survey was conducted during the first cruise of the Marion Offshore Ecosystem Variability Study in the upstream region of the Prince Edward Islands in austral autumn (April/May) 2001. Mesozooplankton samples, collected using a Bongo net (fitted with 200-µm and 300-µm mesh nets), were separated into three size fractions, 200–500 µm, 500–1,000 µm, 1,000–2,000 µm, by reverse filtration. Total surface (depth<5 m) chlorophyll-a concentration during the study ranged… CONTINUE READING
