On average, collections were made every 3-4 d for phytoplankton and zoo-plankton, 7 d for benthos, and 10-14 d for nekton
(fish and swimming benthic invertebrates).
Plankton is one of the three main divisions of aquatic life, the others being nekton
(the animals that swim actively and may move long distances for feeding or breeding) and the benthos (organisms that crawl about on the bottom).
