Abstract/Summary

New measures of zooplankton biomass have been derived from CPR samples in the North Atlantic from 1958 to 2005. The final aim was to investigate how the zooplankton standing stock had varied throughout the last decades, knowing that in different areas of the North Atlantic significant changes in the distribution of the dominant zooplankton species as well as the plankton assemblage have been observed. During the forty-five years of monitoring the contribution of the different groups (e.g. copepods, euphausiids, meroplankton larvae) to the total zooplankton biomass has been evaluated. The changes in the phenology of the biomass were also considered. The relationship between quantity, quality and seasonal timing of plankton and the poor fish recruitment seen in recent years in the North Sea are also discussed.
