Gelatinous zooplankton are conspicuous p‘redators during summer in Chcsapeakc Bay. Inverse correlations of the abundances of gelatinous predators and their zooplankton prey have led to speculation that these predators may control their prey populations. We measured predation on copepods by hydromedusae, scyphomedusae, and ctcnophorcs in the mesohalinc region of the bay in May-October 1987 and 1988. WC simultaneously asscsscd the possibility of food limitation in Acartia tonsa by measuring its… CONTINUE READING
