These are data of the observed contraction behaviors of several species of sponges and cnidarians on the deep seafloor of Station M (4,100 m depth, northeast Pacific Ocean). Data are organized with each worksheet housing data for a different taxon. Each worksheet has records of contraction kinetics for different individuals. Units are hours unless indicated otherwise.
Dietary information of three myctophids (Electrona antarctica, Gymnoscopelus braueri, Krefftichthys anderssoni) and one bathylagid (Bathylagus antarcticus) over the southern extension of the Kerguelen Plateau retrieved using visual assessment of stomach contents.

OTU tables (18S rDNA and mitochondrial COI), mapping file with sample info (species, standard length, etc.), and file with dates and lat/longs for the trawls.
The OTU numbers are not continuous as some OTUs were assigned to parasites, fish, or contaminants rather than diet items. The sample numbers are not continuous as samples with low sequencing depth (<1000 reads for 18S, 0 reads for COI) were excluded.
OTUs were assigned to order level for 18S and species for COI where possible.
