Geographical Area     Canary Islands
Parameters            qualitative and quantitative zooplankton composition, nictimeral
Summary               The collection contains information on zooplankton collected from
                      the surface down to 1000m at stations situated at all the islands.
                      Presently available are samples from Tenerife and Hierro, although
                      in the current and following years we hope to use different kinds of
                      nets at the rest of the islands. The net used was WP-2. Also data on
                      the qualitative composition of the different bathymetric strata were
                      obtained, and at the same time nictimeral migrations were analyzed
                      while fishing by day and by night.
