  • The macrobenthic invertebrates in the shallow (<0·5 m), medium-depth (0·75-1·0 m) and deep (2·0-2·5 m) waters of the lower and upper regions of the large basin of the seasonally closed Wilson Inlet were sampled, using corers, in each season between the winters of 1989 and 1990. The fauna was dominated by capitellid, spionid and nereid polychaetes and mytilid, venerid and tellinid molluscs. Almost 75% of the total numbers were contributed by the polychaetes Heteromastus filiformis (Claparede… CONTINUE READING
