The hyperiid amphipods Themisto libellula and T. abyssorum are important components of Arctic pelagic ecosystems. Both species are carnivorous and prey on mesozooplankton. They represent a substantial food source for marine vertebrates and are a key link between zooplankton secondary production and higher trophic levels. We present data on the total lipid content, lipid class and fatty acid composition of T. libellula and T. abyssorum from northern Fram Strait and the central Arctic Ocean. Both… CONTINUE READING
