Conventional methods of zooplankton sampling have serious limitations for the study of softbodied gelatinous animals, which are easily damaged or destroyed in nets and trawls. An alternative approach is scuba diving in the upper waters of the open ocean to make observations, measurements, and collections in situ. With appropriate safety measures, this method has proved highly effective in revealing natural behavior of a variety of animals, as well as in allowing collection of live specimens for… CONTINUE READING
