Group focus

Group Focus

  • Conduct Net Sampling of Zooplankton in association with CIMT shipboard surveys

  • Analyses

    • Zooplankton biovolume

    • Euphausiid (krill) abundance, species compostition, and demography

    • Gelatinous plankton (large medusa, ctenophores) abundance

Accomplishments to date

Accomplishments to date

  • Since Nov 2002 approximately 300 net samples collected from the CIMT survey grid

  • All have been processed for biovolume, krill, and gelatinous zooplankton


Collaborations

Collaborations

  • SWFSC-Santa Cruz Lab: Annual Juvenile Rockfish Recruitment Surey

    • Provide personnel/expertise for krill data collection

  • PaCOOS: CalCOFI

    • Extend quarterly sampling to include central CA lines 67 and 60

    • Collaborate with SCOOS to integrate euphausiid data base


User groups

User Groups

  • MBNMS – Krill/Gelatinous plankton data utilized to characterized critical prey spp distribution within MBNMS

  • NMFS – sample analyses for Leatherback Turtle foraging habitat characterization

  • PMFC- input for krill management working group
