Oceanographic conditions in the Estuary and the Gulf of St. Lawrence during 2001 : zooplankton

By M. Harvey, J.F. St-Pierre, Pierre Joly and G. Morrier


This report: 1) describes the results on the temporal variability of the zooplankton biomass, abundance, and species composition at two fixed stations and six transects of the Atlantic Zonal Monitoring Program (AZMP; Anticosti Gyre and Gaspé Current) in 2001 and 2) gives an overview of the interannual variability of the macrozooplankton species composition, abundance, and biomass in the Lower St. Lawrence Estuary and the northwest Gulf of St. Lawrence (GSL) as measured in September in each year between 1994 and 2001. We focus on the conditions during 2001 but compare those observations with previous information from 1999 and 2000 for the AZMP results and from 1994 to 2001 for the macrozooplankton results.
