Abstract : Monthly cruises were carried out between March 1986 and April 1992, at twenty-one stations in Albatross Bay, Gulf of Carpentaria. Prawn larval densities were calculated from stepped oblique bottom to surface plankton tows. Salinity-temperature profiles were also recorded. There is also data showing zooplankton biomass in Albatross Bay for both wet and dry seasons.

Attributes Overview : For csv files:
STATION - A nominated (approximate) sampling location. The actual sampling location is specified by the X_COORD,Y_COORD fields.
X_COORD - Longitude in decimal degrees. Nominal scale 1:2000000.
Y_COORD - Latitude in decimal degrees. Nominal scale 1:2000000.
TOTAL1_3 - Total number of prawn larvae recorded for the Z stages (calculated as the sum of Z1, Z2 and Z3)
NONCOMA1_3 - Total larval density (number per sq. metre) for non-commercial Species of prawns. Calculated as "0" for Penaeus, (1-conversion factor)*(TOTAL*CONFAC*FRACTION) for metapenaeus, and TOTAL*CONFAC*FRACTION for all other genera. Conversion factor =0.22 (dervived from M4870_pl a record of metapenaeus species)
