Abstract:The equipment and procedures used in a study of the deep-water zooplankton associated with a recently documented southward flowing undercurrent in the Straits of Florida are described. An opening-closing modified “Discovery” net equipped with a hydrostatic pressure release and a single release mechanism is used, in conjunction with a profiling Aanderaa current meter, while the ship is anchored in the Straits.
