Ohgotrich ciliates are a major microzooplankton component in the northern Baltic Sea during summer The use of wheat starch particles as a tracer-level food source enabled us to simultaneously evaluate in situ clearance rates and food particle size selection of natural ciliate assemblages. Average clearance rates of 9 ciliates of the genera Lohmanniella, Strobilidium, Strombidium, Tintinnidium and Tintinnopsis on their most favored particle sizes ranged from 1.9 to 11.4 p1 cell-' h-'.
