Data of mesozooplankton are collecting continuously at least twice a year in the northeastern Black Sea from 1994 to present time. Currently, only data until 2005 will be made available. more

Samples of zooplankton were collected by vertical hauls by Juday net (Opening mouth diameter 37 cm; square 0,1 m2; mesh size 180 micro m). Data sets comprises species composition, abundance and biomass in m2 and m3. Wet weight of the zooplankton organisms was determined from equation: W = aL3, where L is length of organism (mm), and 'a' is the coefficient calculated from the nomograms of Chislenko (1968).
