Summary The performance of a new mesozooplankton sampler, the U-Tow, was compared to that of the traditional WP2 net. The U-Tow significantly underestimated species abundance, but gave a very good representation of species composition and community size structure. WP2 net samples could be used to calibrate the U-Tow, allowing absolute abundance to be determined. It is recommended that the U-Tow, in its current configuration, be used in conjunction with WP2 net samples to give measures of abundance, or as a tool to identify areas of change in plankton communities.
