Summary The Continuous Plankton Recorder (CPR) survey is one of the most extensive biological time-series in existence and has been in operation over major regions of the North Atlantic since 1932. However, there is little information about the volume of water filtered through each sample, but rather a general assumption has persisted that each sample represents 3 m3. Data from electromagnetic flowmeters, deployed on CPRs between 1995 and 1998, was examined. The mean volume filtered through samples was 3.11 m3 and the effect of clogging on filtration efficiencies was not great. Consequently, even when the likely variations in flow due to clogging are taken into account, previously identified links between zooplankton abundance and climatic signals remain strong.
