Description This dataset was collected in the field (using a plankton pump, CTD, fluorometer and ADCP) for a MSc Thesis and 1 publication. This dataset contains the standardized abundance (count m-3) of meroplanktonic larvae (Gastropods, Bivalves, Bryozoans, Brachyurans, Polychaetes, Carideans, and Asteroids), temperature, salinity, density, fluorescence, calculated Richardson number and current velocities (north-south, east-west, and vertical velocities) at 6 (3, 6, 9, 12, 18 and 24 m) depths, every 2 h over a 36- and 26-h sampling period, in St. George’s Bay, Nova Scotia, Canada. The dataset also included lunar cycle, diel period, tidal state, date, time, sampling depth, sampling depth range, and more.
