Working Group 37: Zooplankton Production Methodologies, Applications and Measurements in PICES Regions
Terms of Reference
  1. Summarize assumptions, recent advances and limitations of both traditional and biochemical methodologies for measuring zooplankton production of natural populations and communities.
  2. Produce recommendations and procedures for both traditional and biochemical zooplankton production rate measurement methodologies and make them available on a website for worldwide access.
  3. Develop practical models for estimating zooplankton production from time-series observations.
  4. Develop an interactive website for exchange of information on zooplankton production measurements for regional and/or global mapping.
  5. Build a network of scientists and laboratories measuring zooplankton production among PICES member nations.
  6. Promote international collaborations among zooplankton production researchers with other international organizations or programs (e.g., ICES and IMBER).
  7. Publish a final report summarizing results.
