Zooplankton Assessments

Pelagic Full Water Column Tows

  • Assessed in each sentinel lakes at multiple times throughout the year
  • Species are identified and counted, density and biomass estimated

Indicators to be evaluated

  • Zooplankton biomass
  • Average Cladoceran Size
  • Average Daphnia Size
  • Daphnia Density
  • Daphnia Biomass
  • Cladoceran Density
  • Cladoceran Biomass
  • Species Diversity
  • Percent Calanoids
  • Density of Fish Edible
