Respiration (= oxygen consumption) rates and electron transport system (ETS) enzyme activities in conjunction with body carbon and nitrogen composition (for respiration) or protein (for ETS) were determined for over 50 copepod species from the mesopelagic (M; 500 to 1000 m), upper- bathypelagic (UB; 1000 to 2000 m) and lower-bathypelagic (LB; 2000 to 3000 m) zones of the western subarctic Pacific. Calculated specific respiration rates (SR, a fraction of body carbon respired) at in situ…

Metabolism and elemental composition of four oncaeid copepods in the western subarctic Pacific
TLDR
The present results indicate that lower metabolic expenditure due to less active swimming together with rich energy reserve in the body (as lipids) are the characters of oncaeid copepods inhabiting in the epi- and mesopelagic zones of this region.
Metabolism and chemical composition of zooplankton from 500 to 5,000 m depth of the western subarctic Pacific Ocean

Respiration (=oxygen consumption) rates of 28 zooplankton species belonging to 10 taxa from 500 to 5,000 m depth of the western subarctic Pacific Ocean were determined as 0.027–0.44 μLO2 mg dry
Metabolic activity of pelagic copepods from 5,000 to 7,000 m depth of the western subarctic Pacific, as inferred from electron transfer system (ETS) activity
TLDR
Reduced electron transfer system (ETS) activity of mixed copepods collected from 5,000 to 7,000 m depths is demonstrated, which is similar to or greater than those reported for selected copepod or mixed mesozooplankton from <5,000-m depth by previous workers.
Metabolism and chemical composition of marine pelagic amphipods: synthesis toward a global bathymetric model
  • T. Ikeda
  • Environmental Science
    Journal of Oceanography
  • 2013
TLDR
Comparison of the present results with global bathymetric models of euphausiids and pelagic copepods revealed that respiration rates of the pelagic amphipods were near-equal to the rates ofeuphaUSiids but greater than the rate of pelagicCopepods, reflecting taxon-specific body morphology and swimming behavior among the three taxa.
Metabolism in mesopelagic and bathypelagic copepods: Reply to Childress et al. (2008)
TLDR
Results from the experiment of Ikeda et al. (2006) continue to support the conclusion of reduced respi- ration in deeper-living copepods.
Respiration in marine pelagic copepods: a global-bathymetric model
TLDR
The mechanisms leading to a negative effect of depth and a positive effect of oxygen saturation on respiration rates are thought to be due to 'predation-mediated selection' and the lack of specialized respiratory organs.

Metabolic rates of epipelagic marine copepods as a function of body mass and temperature
Abstract. Metabolic rates (oxygen consumption, ammonia excretion, phosphate excretion) have been calculated as a function of body mass (dry, carbon, nitrogen and phosphorus weights) and habitat
A global assessment of mesozooplankton respiration in the ocean
TLDR
It appears that mesozooplankton represent a major, but neglected component of the carbon cycle in the ocean, which is 3‐8-fold higher than the values assigned to mesozoplankon respiration in recent estimates of total respiration.
Metabolic rates of epipelagic marine zooplankton as a function of body mass and temperature
TLDR
The latitudinal gradient of community metabolic rate for net zooplankton in the ocean is estimated, emphasizing the non-parallelism between community metabolic rates and the standing stock of net zoopsalankton.

Effects of hydrostatic pressure on metabolic rates of six species of deep-sea gelatinous zooplankton
TLDR
Data support the validity of measuring the metabolic rates of deep-living gelatinous zooplankton species at surface pressures and indicate that metabolic rates are relatively insenTwo physical factors, temperature and hydrostatic pressure, have profoundly different values at greater depths in the ocean than at the surface.
Chemical composition and buoyancy of midwater crustaceans as function of depth of occurrence off Southern California
TLDR
The energy involved in maintaining an animal in the water column is generally insignificant compared to its overall activity and advantages of neutral buoyancy other than energy conservation may be more important selective factors for this characteristic.
