This dataset contains data collected from six shipboard measurements taken from the R/V Ocean Researcher I between April 2014 and November 2015, which covered the entire season: April, July, September, and November 2014 and March, June, September, and November 2015 in the Kuroshio, east of Taiwan described in the paper: "Chung-Chi Chen, Pei-Ji Meng, Chih-hao Hsieh, Sen Jan (2022). Plankton community respiration and particulate organic carbon in the Kuroshio, east of Taiwan. Plants". The main results of this study included seven figures, which show: 1). The sampling stations; 2). Typical depth profile contour plots of temperature, nitrate, chlorophyll a and particulate organic carbon within 250 m water depth along the KTV1 transect in September 2015; 3). Temporal and spatial variations of the mean values of nitrate and phosphate across the KTV1 transect of the Kuroshio; 4). Temporal and spatial variations of the mean values of chlorophyll a, particulate organic carbon, and plankton community respiration across the KTV1 transect of the Kuroshio; 5). Relationships between the concentration of plankton community respiration vs. particulate organic carbon, chlorophyll a, heterotrophic bacterioplankton, and all picophytoplankton; 6). Relationships between the concentration of particulate organic carbon vs. chlorophyll a and picophytoplankton for all pooled data; and 7). Temporal and spatial variations of the mean values of picophytoplankton in terms of abundance and biomass across the KTV1 transect of the Kuroshio.
