A semi‐automated zooplankton analysis system for Delaware Bay and coastal waters: method development and implementation (HCE-14)
Investigator: Jonathan Cohen — University of Delaware
A critical link in coastal and marine food chains, zooplankton are tiny animals that feed on phytoplankton and are consumed by fish and other animals. Little data exists for zooplankton populations in Delaware Bay; Delaware Sea Grant researchers will acquire and calibrate a new sample analysis system to catalogue zooplankton from multiple seasons and make that data available for researchers, teachers, and students.
