Then the sample was passed through a 280-[micro]m filter to remove macroplankton. Finally, samples were taken for determinations of the chlorophyll a concentration (using the spectrophotometric method, Strickland & Parsons 1972) and of the mass of organic and inorganic materials in the seston (gravimetric method).
No longer than 12 h after collection, plankton were sieved twice (3.2 mm and 0.7 mm) to remove macroplankton and macroalgae.
