Compiled in this report are tables of zooplankton biomass data (displacement volume), carbon equivalents, and associated net tow data (volume filtered, depth, temperature, and salinity) collected with a Multlple Opening/Closing Net Environmental Sampling System (MOCNESS) during the warm-core ring cruises which took between September 1981 and October 1982. Rings sampled were 81-D, 82-B, and 82-H. Also included are plots of tow positions relative to ring center and plots of biomass and cumulative proportion of biomass versus depth. A total of 81 tows and 1220 samples were taken.
