The following is a taxonomic key of the diverse faunal groups that were collected during a 15-month zooplankton survey of Port Shelter, in the eastern waters of Hong Kong during May 2016 to July 2017. A 500 µm mesh Bongo net was deployed to target microplankton (measuring between 20-200 µm) and mesoplankton (measuring between 200-2000 µm) size ranges.

Examples of some of the genera and species found are given. Click on the names underlined for the relevant photomicrographs page in the Photo Guide.
