Short summary
Here we present a dataset of DNA sequences obtained from size-fractionated seawater samples from the Arctic Ocean that are used to identify taxonomic groups of unicellular plankton. This dataset can be used to investigate the diversity and distribution of plankton groups both by season and by depth and thus increase our understanding of the factors influencing the dynamics of this important part of the Arctic marine ecosystem.
