Olivier M., Dallot S., Buecher E., Nival S., Beck O., Bonnet S., Mousseau L, Stemmann L. (2015) Temporal evolution of zooplankton from 1966 to 1999 from Juday-Bogorov net in the Northwestern Mediterranean Sea

The Observatoire of Villefranche sur Mer supports the daily sampling of zooplankton from 1898-1917 and 1966 onwards at a time series station located at the entrancy of the Bay of Villefranche sur Mer. Samples were collected by a vertical tow from bottom to surface (75-0 m), using a Juday-Bogorov net and Regent net. The sampling site is located at the mouth of the Bay over a bathymetry of 80m and is thus open to the Ligurian Sea. Zooplankton abundance was counted by specialist at OOV under microscopes. more

The different equipment which was used is the following: Regent net: 680µm of mesh, opening: 1m, length: 4m, opening: 0.785m²; Regent net: 700µm of mesh, opening 1m, length: 4m; Juday-Bogorov net: 380 µm of mesh, opening: 0.50, length: 1.80m; WP2: 220µm of mesh, opening: 0.25m². Method step description: For the siphonophores, since 1993, all data are transformed from a Regent Net to a Juday-Bogorov net with a coefficient *6 as described in original publication.
