This dataset describes primary biodiversity data pertaining to pelagic diversity from the Bay of Toliara, Madagascar. The data is assembled in the framework of a specialized training program for students from Madagascar and its surrounding region (Pole de Formation Spécialisee, Institut Halieutique et des Sciences de la Mer). Additional data will be added along the years. Pelagic samples are taken in the Bay of Toliara using two ships and Plankton nets. The georeferencing is done using a GPS onboard ships, and samples are taken inside the lagoon (in two seperate locations); as well as on the outer fringe of the coral reef. The taxonomic determination are done by the students using a local field guide, under the supervision of their accompanying professor. Students enter data in Darwincore spreadsheet templates as provided by GBIF.

Samples were taken in the Bay of Toliara (Madagascar), in the Mozambique Channel.
|界定座標範圍||緯度南界 經度西界 [-23.4, 43.62], 緯度北界 經度東界 [-23.35, 43.67]|
All taxa captured using small plancton nets are entered in the dataset, including zoo-, phyto- plankton. Names were matched using the World Register of Marine Species Taxon Match Tool (http://marinespecies.org/aphia.php?p=match).
|Domain||Biota (Pelagic organisms)|
|計畫名稱||Pôle de Formation Spécialisée, Institut Halieutique des Sciences de la Mer|
|研究區域描述||Toliara Reef, Mozambique Channel, Madagascar|
Sampling was carried out using plakton nets of two sizes, deployed by students onboard small vessels naviugating in the Bay of Toliara, inside and outside the lagoon.
|研究範圍||This study will include occurrence of organisms recorded in the framework of the Pelagic Biodiversity course of the Pôle de Formation Spécialisée.|
|品質控管||Sampling, Identification and Georeferencing were performed by the students, under the supervision of Prof Bruno Danis, Université Libre de Bruxelles. Scientific Names were matched against the content of the World Register of Marine Species using the dedicated Taxon Match tool.|
- each data object corresponds to an individual observed in the field and collected using plankton nets. as mentionned in the data quality control field, sampling, identification and georeferencing were performed by the students, under the supervision of Prof Bruno Danis, Université Libre de Bruxelles
|目的||This data has been collected by Master-level students, under the supervision of their professor. Identifications are not specialist grade.|
