North Temperate Lakes LTER Pelagic Macroinvertebrate Abundance 1983 - current

Abstract

Pelagic macroinvertebrates are collected at night from the deepest location of each of the seven primary lakes in the Trout Lake area (Allequash, Big Muskellunge, Crystal, Sparkling, and Trout lakes and bog lakes 27-02 [Crystal Bog], and 12-15 [Trout Bog]) by vertical tow with a 1-m diameter, 1-mm mesh net. On Trout Lake four additional sites are sampled, where depths are approximately 10m, 15m, 20m, and 25m. Sampling is once per year in the summer, with replicate tows collected on each lake. These tows target the large invertebrate planktivore component of the pelagic zooplankton community. This data set contains the number of individuals in each tow sample of four taxonomic groups: Chaoborus spp. (differentiating between larvae and pupae), Leptodora kindtii, Mysis relicta, and Bythotrephes longimanus. Trout Lake was the only lake sampled in 2020. Sampling Frequency: annually. Number of sites: 11
