The biological oceanography of waters adjacent to Australia's North West Cape (21° 49′ S, 114° 14′ E) was studied during the austral summers of 1997/98 and 1998/99. We measured egg production rate (EPR) by the small paracalanid copepods that dominated the calanoid community. Bottle incubation experiments were conducted at a shallow (∼20 m) station in the mouth of Exmouth Gulf, and at a shelf-break station (∼80 m). In 1997/98, we measured EPR by Paracalanus aculeatus, P. indicus, Acrocalanus… CONTINUE READING
