We first identified all the zooplankton per large taxonomic groups (typically Order), and later several taxonomic experts helped us to identify species for the 12 selected zooplankton groups: Copepoda, Cladocera, Decapoda, Euphausiacea, Amphipoda, Mysidacea, Siphonophora, Chaetognatha, Pteropoda, Appendicularia, Cephalopoda, and Pisces (fish larvae).
Appendicularia (Order Copelata) and Chaetognatha, each one had 1.
Fish larvae showed the highest taxa number (107 taxa ranging from family to species) decreasing with Decapoda (56), Copepoda (35), Thecosomata (17), Amphipoda (15), Siphonophora (10), Chaetognatha (7), Euphausiacea (6), Cladocera (2), Mysidacea (2), Appendicularia (1), and Cephalopoda (1) (Table 3).
