Sympagic macro-fauna from multiyear sea-ice near Svalbard

  author={Ole J\orgen L\onne and Bj\orn Gulliksen},
  journal={Polar Biology},
The object of the present investigation was to map the distribution and abundance of sympagic fauna (= ice fauna) (>350 μm) within the perennial sea ice zone near Svalbard and to study relations between the sympagic fauna and the age and history of its ice substrate. The sampling took place in July/August 1986 and September 1988 using SCUBA-operated sampling gear (suction samplers, plankton nets with especially designed frames for sampling at the sea-ice/seawater interface, and underwater… CONTINUE READING
