Zooplankton and phytoplankton are regularly sampled by SMHI (Swedish Meteorological and Hydrological Institute) in the frame of the international monitoring programme of the Helsinki Commission (HELCOM). Two stations are sampled in the Kattegat; Anholt East (56 40'N 12 07'E) and N14 Falkenberg (56 56.40'N 12 12.7'E). Station N14 Falkenberg has only been sampled for a couple of years and is not included online at this point. Two stations are also sampled in the Skagerrak Slaggo (58 15.5N 11 26E) and A17 (58 16.5N 10 30.8E).

At-station sampling and at-lab sample processing are conducted according to the HELCOM COMBINE manual for phytoplankton and/or zooplankton (HELCOM, 2010). All individuals were taxonomically identified to the lowest possible taxonomic level, but were presented as general taxonomic groups in these pages.
