Grazing of microzooplankton on phytoplankton was studied in the eastern Canadian Arctic by the dilution method. In Jones Sound, significantly high growth and grazing coefficients on phytoplankton were observed even though the mixed layer nutnents were low. In Baffin Bay, growth and grazing coefficients could be observed only when excess nutnents (NOs) were added to the experimental bottles. The microzooplankton community grazed 8 to 15 % of initial standing stock and 40 to 114 % of potential… CONTINUE READING
