An optical plankton counter (OPC) and CTD mounted to a ScanFish platform were towed and undulated behind the R/V Pelican during cruises PE03-NGOMEX, PE04-NGOMEX, PE06-NGOMEX, PE07-NGOMEX, PE09-05, and PE11-06 in the Northern Gulf of Mexico between 2003 and 2010. CTD and MIDAS data were synchronized and merged with simultaneously collected OPC data and aggregated into 1 second time bins. Bottom depth was obtained from the NOAA NCEI coastal relief model. For a complete list of measurements, refer to the supplemental document 'Field_names.pdf', and a full dataset description is included in the supplemental file 'Dataset_description.pdf'.
