Zones of minimum oxygen are found at intermediate depths in most of the world's oceans and although the dissolved oxygen in some of these “?�oxygen minimum layers” is considerably less than 0. 5 ml/l, populations of metazoans exist there ( Schmidt, 1925 ; Sewell and Fage, 1948 ; Banse, 1964) . Previous studies have shown that crustaceans which live in such minimum layers are unusually effec tive at removing oxygen from water (Teal and Carey, 1967; Childress, 1968, 1969, 1971, 1975).
