The spring plankton sampled at Station 3 had a very diverse assemblage. Phytoplankton included the diatomCoscinodiscus in addition to two types of Ceratium dinoflagellate. Zooplankton included copepods, larval echinoderm (e.g., starfish) and the ciliate Laboea. NOTE: This image has lower magnification than other biology images; thus, these species appear to be relatively small.
NOTE: images from FlowCAM (right) capture fragile plankton species better than plankton net sample images (above).
