Summary
Abstract: Zooplankton collections were made to investigate interannual changes in species composition, abundance and distribution of the zooplankton in the Chuckchi Sea, one of the biologically lesser known areas of the Arctic. Vertical stratified tows (0-10 m, 10-25 m and 25 m bottom) were done with a Nansen net (0.5 m diameter, 333 µm mesh) at 21 stations in August of 1953 and August of 1954. The ship ...
