The three-celled counting chamber was designed to fulfill a specific need in the study of variations in the distribution of very small zooplankters. This need was to be able to describe the mechanisms underlying the distribution and movements of sardines, it was necessary to precisely determine the distribution of their food which consist primarily of small zooplankters.

High-speed plankton samplers are used aboard the USBCF vessel MURRE II to determine changes in distribution and abundance of zooplankton. These small animals are important sources of food for young salmon once they enter salt water. The distribution and abundance of plankton is partially controlled by water temperature, salinity, and ocean currents.
