Zooplankton biovolume values from MOCNESS tows - this data set is derived from displacement volume measurements and dry weight conversion calculations from the same set of samples as the above data.

Zooplankton Abundance Based on Taxa and Life Stages or Size - these abundance values on the same tows were derived by counting and identifying a subset of the zooplankton to the species and life stage for euphausiids and dominant copepods and to taxonomic group with broad size categories for other zooplankton (pteropod, chaetognath, polychaete, etc.).
