PERCY, J.A., F.J. FIFE, 1993. Macrozooplankton, particularly species of Themisto (Amphipoda, Hyperiidea), and temperature, salinity and density data collected in eastern Hudson Strait in 1987-88. Can. Data Rep. Fish. Aquat. Sci., 905, 123 p .
This data report presents a compilation of all oceanographic and biological data collected during the summers of 1987 and 1988 in eastern Hudson Strait, particularly in the vicinity of Resolution Island, located at the entrance of the Strait. The data include vertical profiles of temperature, salinity and density as well as T-S diagrams for each of the stations. Oblique tows with a 1 m bongo net at 49 stations in various parts of the eastern Strait during late August 1987 provided information on the biomass of the principal macrozooplankton groups and on the comparative, abundance, distribution and sizes of the three Themisto species occurring in the region. During late August 1988, 13 BIONESS tows from near bottom to surface at intervals at a station located just southwest of Resolution Island provided information on the distribution of the various species of pelagic amphipods in the water column and on their diel vertical migrations
PERCY, J.A., F.J. FIFE, J. SHEA, P. RIEBEL, 1988. Seasonal changes in abundance and size frequency distribution of the dominant macrozooplankton in Frobisher Bay, N.W.T. Can. Data Rep. Fish. Aquat. Sci., 705, 208 p .
This report serves as a repository for tabular data pertaining to the seasonal changes in abundance and size frequency distribution of four macrozooplankton species present in Upper Frobisher Bay, N.W.T. Data are presented for the ctenophore Mertensia ovum, the hyperiid amphipod Parathemisto libellula, the Chaetognath Sagitta elegans and the pteropod Clione limacina. "Passive samplers" strained the strong tidal currents at 2 stations in Upper Frobisher Bay during 64 samples periods in the winter, spring and summer months of 1981 to 1985.
Phytoplankton data from collections during late summer and early fall of 1984 and 1985 in northeastern Ungava Bay are tabulated. Fifty-four genera and 102 species were identified. The diatoms were the largest group in terms of the number of cells and species. Among them, centric diatoms had fewer species but a greater abundance of cells than the pennate diatoms. Chlorophytes, chrysophytes, blue-green algae, euglenoids and dinoflagellates occurred in lower numbers in terms of both cells and species. Seawater temperature ranged from 0.2 °C in deeper water ot 3.2 °C near the surface, with most values lying between 1.5 °C and 2.0 °C. Salinity remained consistently between 30 ppt and 32 ppt except at Station 7.
