Abstract: This report contains tabulations of abundance of zooplankton other than Copepoda collected from Fletcher's Ice Island (T-3) on a drift track in the Canadian Basin of the Arctic Ocean during 1966 and 1967. Samples were taken, using a plankton-pumping system, at 5-m depth intervals from 5 to 185 m, and with two sizes of closing plankton nets at intervals between 0 and 2000m. The organisms were ...

Purpose: The objectives of this portion of the study were; (1) to evaluate the effectiveness of a plankton-pumping system and two sizes of plankton nets for sampling zooplankton other than copepods from Fletcher's Ice Island (T-3), and (2) to obtain a description of the vertical and seasonal distributions of the zooplankton.
