Table 1 Sampling dates, sampling depth (m) and methods used in collecting Limnocalanus macrurus (LM; ind./m3) and mixed plankton samples (PL; ind./m3) from the Bothnian Sea for different analyses

From: Fatty acid composition and lipid content in the copepod Limnocalanus macrurus during summer in the southern Bothnian Sea
