Large mesopelagic fishes biomass and trophic efficiency in the open ocean
With a current estimate of ~1,000 million tons, mesopelagic fishes likely dominate the world total fishes biomass. However, recent acoustic observations show that mesopelagic fishes biomass could beExpand

Vertical distribution and mortality of overwintering Calanus
Overwintering Calanus spp. were studied in four Norwegian fjords with different predator regimes and ranging in depth from 380 to 1300 m. Three fjords held both the planktivorous mesopelagic fishExpand

Photoperiod may constrain the effect of global warming in arctic marine systems
Scenarios for climate change predict that global warming drives biogeographic boundaries polewards. However, reliable predictions of marine food web responses to climate change require understandingExpand

Acoustical study of the spatial distribution of plankton on Georges Bank and the relationship between volume backscattering strength and the taxonomic composition of the plankton
Abstract High frequency (420 kHz) sound was used to study the volume backscattering from plankton and micronekton over Georges Bank as part of a study designed to determine the correlation lengthExpand

Efficient trawl avoidance by mesopelagic fishes causes large underestimation of their biomass
Mesopelagic fishes occur in all the world's oceans, but their abundance and consequently their ecological significance remains uncertain. The current global estimate based on net sampling prior toExpand

Taxonomic and systematic assessment of planktonic copepods using mitochondrial COI sequence variation and competitive, species-specific PCR
Accurate taxonomic identification of species at all life stages is critical to understand and predict the processes that together determine marine community dynamics. However, zooplankton assemblagesExpand

Mesoscale Eddies Are Oases for Higher Trophic Marine Life
Mesoscale eddies stimulate biological production in the ocean, but knowledge of energy transfers to higher trophic levels within eddies remains fragmented and not quantified. Increasing the knowledgeExpand

Life history of Calanus finmarchicus in the Norwegian Sea in relation to planktivorous fish
This paper is focused on the potential impact of planktivorous fish in shaping the life history of Calanus finmarchicus in the Norwegian Sea. It is suggested that seasonally migrating fish speciesExpand

Significance of advection for the carrying capacities of fjord populations
Advective rates of nutrients, phytoplankton and zooplankton were estimated for the Masfjord, western Norway, in June and October 1985. The advective contribution to the phytoplankton biomassExpand
