I.P. Kutcheva. The results of spring investigations of zooplankton in Chupa Inlet, Kandalaksha Bay of the White Sea (0-5 m) // The study, sustainable use and conservation of natural resources od the White sea. Proceedings of the IXth international conference October, 11-14, 2004, Petrozavodsk, Karelia, Russia, 2005. Pp. 184-186
Results of spring investigations of zooplankton in Chupa Inlet during May-June 1982-1984, 1986-1987, 1990, 1992-19993, 1994, 1996, and 1998 are presented. In spring the distribution of zooplankton in surface 0-5 m depends on the presence of three species of copepods: Pseudocalanus minutus, Microsetella norvegica, and Oithona similis. First P. minutus occupies this layer. Active water currents from Kandalaksha Bay and rise in water temperature make P. minutus to sink deeper, where females continue spawning. Eurybiotic species like O. similis and M. norvegica occupy surface water of all Chupa Inlet. Presence of big quantity adult M. norvegica determines low density of copepod naupliii, the main feed of herring larvae. After eurybiotic species boreal species of zooplankton appear.
