Amphipods from the central and northern areas of the Barents Sea were studied by a series of MOCNESS profiles between 1990 and 1997. Themisto abyssorum, though dominant in warmer Atlantic water, was also present in Arctic water. In contrast, T. libellula was a typical Arctic species and penetrated very little into the Atlantic water masses. T. compressa was seldom found in the studied area. Linear regression analysis showed a statistically significant negative relationship between abundance of… CONTINUE READING
