The distribution of Pacific euphausiids
A study of the distribution of 59 euphausiid species in the Pacific Ocean, based upon oceanic surveys carried out from 1949 to 1961, finds some species that inhabit a mesopelagic zone between depths of about 500 and 1,500 meters and other species that are characteristically epipelagic, living mainly above 500–700 meters.

Decadal variability in abundances of the dominant euphausiid species in southern sectors of the California Current
Abstract Euphausiid abundance data from broadly based California Cooperative Oceanic Fisheries Investigation surveys in California and Baja California sectors of the California Current provided aExpand
Population biology of Euphausia pacifica off southern California
Euphausia pacifica was observed with respect to reproduction, growth and development of cohorts, and successions in population structure and biomass during 4 yr, 1953-56. The southern California eddyExpand
Parameters relating to the distributions of planktonic organisms, especially euphausiids in the eastern tropical Pacific
The depth at which euphausiid volume is equal in amount day and night, across which vertical migration takes place, is designated the equilibrium depth (EqD) for euphasiids volume, indicating that euphalusiids play a role in determining depth of EqD for zooplankton volume. Expand
Euphausiids of the world ocean
This interactive and beautifully illustrated CD-ROM contains an up-to-date taxonomic reference work on the order of Euphausiacea, from the Scripps Institution of Oceanography, including full systematic descriptions, taxonomy, biogeography, references, colour photographs and drawings. Expand
Mesoscale variation in growth and early development of euphausia superba dana in the western Bransfield Strait region
It is proposed that the northern Gerlache Strait is a primary nursery area for E. superba, and that local circulation promotes high primary productivity and prolongs the residence time of larvae in a nearshore environment which is favorable to development and growth. Expand
Euphausiids of Southeast Asian waters
Author(s): Brinton, Edward | Abstract: Euphausiids collected by R/V Stranger during 1959-61 were examined with respect to 1) seasonal change in distribution, abundance and recruitment in the Gulf ofExpand

The extent of vertical migration was greatest in the most offshore central water, intermediate for midcurrent species, and least for coastal, and nonmigrants included all Stylocheiron species, Thysanoessa gregaria, and two Nematobrachion species. Expand
Development rates and habitat shifts in the Antarctic neritic euphausiid Euphausia crystallorophias, 1986–87
Abstract Dynamics of distribution and growth were studied in the coastal Antarctic euphausiid Euphausia crystallorophias in the western Bransfield Strait region during the 1986–1987 summer. The lifeExpand
