Vertical profiles of zooplankton (size range less than 5 mm) were taken with a 1 m2 MOCNESS (333 pm mesh aperture) from the > 4000 m water column at 2 sites in the NE Atlantic. In the upper 1000 m, the profiles tended to exhibit high variability and were influenced by diurnal migrations, but below, the distributions were nearly similar. The standing crop in the upper 400 m was remarkably low, possibly due to a bloom of salps and their grazing pressure on the phytoplankton crop. The nonlinear… Expand
