NODC Accession 0105586 includes tows - plankton tows and biological data collected aboard NOAA Ship ALBATROSS IV, ENDEAVOR and OCEANUS during cruises AL9505, AL9506, AL9508, AL9605, AL9607, AL9701, AL9705, AL9707, AL9801, AL9806, AL9808, AL9901, AL9904, AL9906, EN261, EN263, EN265, EN276, EN278, EN282, EN320, OC275, OC298, OC300, OC302, OC317, OC319, OC322, OC336 and OC341 in the North Atlantic Ocean from 1995-02-11 to 1999-06-24. These data include SPECIES IDENTIFICATION - ORGANISM LENGTH, SPECIES IDENTIFICATION and TAXONOMIC CODE. The instruments used to collect these data include Multiple Opening/Closing Net and Environmental Sensing System (MOCNESS). These data were collected by Erich Horgan and Larry Madin of Woods Hole Oceanographic Institution as part of GB. The Biological and Chemical Oceanography Data Management Office (BCO-DMO) submitted these data to NODC on 2013-04-25.
