Mesopelagic Crustaceans of the North Western Portuguese Coast between 1998 and 2000

Latest version published by IPMA - Instituto Português do Mar e da Atmosfera on May 21, 2019 IPMA - Instituto Português do Mar e da Atmosfera

The objective of this data collection was to study the structure of the mesopelagic ecosistem off the Northwestern Portuguese coast which is composed by planktonic and nectonics organisms. Mesopelagic organisms live during the day concentrating in big numbers in deeper depths while during the night migrates towards the upper layers. The data was collected aiming to study the composition and the Dynamics of the mesopelagic community and their trophic relations with the fish in the area. Data was collected with an Isaac-Kidd midwater trawl in May 1998 and 2000 and February 1999, together with environmental parameters as temperature, salinity, etc
