MOOSE GE is a yearly ocean-monitoring cruise which is part of the MOOSE program, within the Research Infrastructure ILICO, the aim of which is to monitor the North-Western Mediterranean (considered to act as a model system for larger ocean basins). This dataset contains the planktonic organisms collected by a Bongo net (180 to 200µm mesh) hauled vertically from 200m depth to the surface at each station, therefore covering organisms from ~200µm to ~2cm.
