A standard 1-m2 Multiple Opening/Closing Net and Environmental Sensing System (MOCNESS; Wiebe et al., 1985) was used to collect zooplankton to determine the taxonomic composition of the zooplankton in the study site with a specific focus on the shell bearing thecosomatous pteropods.  It was also used to ground truth acoustic data collected with the HTI multi-frequency system and the Edgetech broadband system.

These data are the CTD data collected during the 1 meter2 MOCNESS tows. They provide standard environmental measurements simultaneously with the collection of the animals.

Fluorescence, oxygen and irradiance data were not collected from this instrument system.
