  title={Composition and abundance of zooplankton under the spring sea-ice of McMurdo Sound, Antarctica},
  author={Brian A. Foster},
  journal={Polar Biology},
Zooplankton was sampled through holes in the sea-ice of McMurdo Sound from 8 November to 10 December, 1985. Replicated vertical hauls were made to 100 and 300 m off Pram Point in the inner Sound, near the edge of the permanent McMurdo Ice Shelf. The zooplankton was sparse, averaging 2.5 mg/m3 wet weight. The numbers of individual species varied between catches, depths, and occasions. Generally, small copepods, particularly Oithona similis, Ctenocalanus citer and Oncaea curvata, numerically… CONTINUE READING
