  • Abstract The production dynamics of Pontoporeia affinis Lindstrom and P. femorata Kroyer (Crustacea, Am-phipoda) were studied in 1980 near Tvarminne, SW coast of Finland. The study areas were located in the outer archipelago at depths of 21–25 and 26–30 m and in the sea zone at 46 m.p In P. affinis abundance declined from 12 000-17 000 ind. m-2 in May to 800–3000 ind. m-2 in November, but the maximum biomass of 5–8 g AFDM m-2 was attained in August. In the archipelago the daily production… CONTINUE READING
