The values of natural abundance of stable isotopes were measured in 13 micronekton fish species sampled during the MAFIA cruise (North Atlantic, April 2015). This dataset contains the values obtained for carbon and nitrogen in bulk tissues, and nitrogen values in amino acids. Length data and the number of individuals analysed for each species are also provided. Mesopelagic fishes were collected using a ''Mesopelagos” net (5x7 m mouth opening, 58 m total lenght) equipped with graded-mesh netting (starting with 30 mm and ending with 4 mm) and a multi-sampler for collecting samples from 5 different depth layers (Olivar et al., 2017). For C:N and stable isotope analyses, individual fish were eviscerated, freeze-dried and weighted. Aliquots of muscular tissue (or whole individuals for species of small size) were analyzed in an elemental analyzer (bulk tissues, Olivar et al., 2019) or a gas chromatograph (derivatized amino acids, Mompeán et al., 2016) coupled to isotope-ratio mass spectrometers. This research was funded by projects MAFIA (CTM2012-39587-C04), BATHYPELAGIC (CTM2016-78853-R), and QLOCKS (PID2020-115620RB-100) from the Plan Estatal de I+D+I (Spain), projects SUMMER (Grant Agreement 817806) and TRIATLAS (Grant Agreement 817578), from the European Union (Horizon 2020 Research and Innovation Programme), and the support through the ‘Severo Ochoa Centre of Excellence’ accreditation (CEX2019-000928-S).
