Sampling and Processing Summary
The twenty-five top ranking zooplankton taxon/life-stage combinations taken along the Gulf of Maine Continuous Plankton Recorder transect, based on total catch of the combination, 1961 through 2004, along with their contribution to the forty-four year total zooplankton catch. Lower ranking combinations, combinations with consistent, but different time spans, and combinations not identified and staged consistently were summed in the "Zooplankton other taxa (MARMAP-SOOP)" category.

Further details available from the contributor:   Jack Jossi.
