Full description

The O&A Marine Plankton Collection comprises of historical zooplankton samples collected between 1940 - 1996. The collection is housed at the EcoSciences Precinct, Dutton Park, QLD. The collection includes:

(1) Phytoplankton and zooplankton samples collected by the Integrated Marine Observing System (IMOS) Australian Continuous Plankton Recorder survey (AusCPR)

(2) Zooplankton samples from the IMOS National Reference Stations program.

(3) Detailed information regarding the plankton collection held at Dutton Park was added in August 2014 (refer to: Plankton_Historic_samples_ sorted_ by_AF_24_06_2014.xlsx). Note that this list is incomplete and is currently only a working list, as such it be updated regularly. Refer to document link below.

The collection includes data collected by the following vessels:
1. Diamantina voyages 1959-1963: Indian Ocean, Western Australia, GAB, Jjakarta, Sumatra, North West, during 1970-1973 (1973 Freemantle to Hobart).
2. Derwent Hunter 1954-1961: South East Australia (1959-60), NSW coast (Port Stephens-Jervis Bay) and Tasman Sea (1960), Jervis Bay 1961,
3. Courageous (1978)
4. Gascoyne: 1962, SE Indian Ocean

Coastal Station Data:
1. Port Hacking stations: 1959, 1968-1971
2. Batemans Bay 1959-1960,
3. Bermagui 1957-1960
4. Jervis Bay 1958-1960
4. Eden NSW: 1956-1960

Notes

The data was collected in part by the following vessels: Diamantina, Derwent Hunter, Courageous and Gascoyne, and by coastal stations.
The O&A Marine Plankton Collection comprises of historical zooplankton samples dating back to the 1940s. The collection also includes Phytoplankton and zooplankton samples collected by the Integrated Marine Observing System (IMOS) Australian Continuous Plankton Recorder survey (AusCPR) and Zooplankton samples from the IMOS National Reference Stations program. The collection is housed at the EcoSciences Precinct
Dutton Park
QLD.

Lineage

Plankton samples were collected and preserved in the field. The historical samples were stored at the Marine Laboratories in Hobart until 2010 and then were transferred to the EcoSciences Precinct, Dutton Park, QLD. IMOS samples are stored at the EcoSciences Precinct, Dutton Park, QLD . The historical and NRS samples are stored in formalin. The AusCPR silks are fixed in formalin and then preserved in PGP (Phenoxypropolene glycol). Every fourth segment (Segments 1:5:9:13 etc) are used for the zooplankton analysis and are destroyed when measuring biomass. The other samples are archived and some are available for use by other researchers on application.

Data time period: 1940
