SHARK - National zooplankton monitoring in Sweden since 1979

Latest version published by Test Organization #1 on Mar 2, 2021 Test Organization #1

Zooplankton have been monitored in Sweden since 1979.

The national monitoring program was initiated by the Swedish Environmental Protection Agency and is now financed by the Swedish Agency for Marine and Water Management. Monitoring is performed by Stockholm University, Umeå University, Swedish Meteorological and Hydrological Institute and Gothenburg University.

Data are stored in the Swedish Ocean Archive database (SHARK), by the Swedish Meteorological and Hydrological Institute. Data are collected and analyzed according to the HELCOM COMBINE Manual - Part C Annex C7 Mesozooplankton (https://helcom.fi/media/publications/Guidelines-for-monitoring-of-mesozooplankton.pdf) or similar methods.

"Mesozooplankton constitute an important part of zooplankton in the pelagic food webs, since these are the organisms representing the link between primary producers (phytoplankton) and higher trophic levels (zooplanktivorous fish and invertebrates).[...] The sampling of mesozooplankton serves [...] to describe the species composition and the spatial distribution of mesozooplankton abundance and biomass" (HELCOM COMBINE Manual https://helcom.fi/media/publications/Guidelines-for-monitoring-of-mesozooplankton.pdf).

Information about the program and the methods are also available in Swedish at https://www.havochvatten.se/vagledning-foreskrifter-och-lagar/vagledningar/ovriga-vagledningar/undersokningstyper-for-miljoovervakning/undersokningstyper/djurplankton-trend--och-omradesovervakning.html

Data Records

The data in this sampling event resource has been published as a Darwin Core Archive (DwC-A), which is a standardized format for sharing biodiversity data as a set of one or more data tables. The core data table contains 6,759 records. 2 extension data tables also exist. An extension record supplies extra information about a core record. The number of records in each extension data table is illustrated below.

  • Event (core)

This IPT archives the data and thus serves as the data repository. The data and resource metadata are available for download in the downloads section. The versions table lists other versions of the resource that have been made publicly available and allows tracking changes made to the resource over time.
