pi_name: Janne Søreide (biomass) & Kim Præbel (metabarcoding)
Provide information about seasonal, annual and regional variations in biomass and genetic composition of the mesozooplankton fraction along a latitudinal environmental gradient in the Barents Sea from South to North. The samples were collected using Bongonets of both 180 um (mesozooplankton) & 64 um (small mesozooplankton) from the bottom to the surface. When the bottom depth was deeper than 1000 m (P6 & P7). Samples were taken from 1000-0m.
