Mesozooplankton production, grazing and respiration in the Bay of Bengal: Implications for net heterotrophy
Description: Mesozooplankton samples were collected from the mixed layer along a central (along 88°E) and a western transect in the Bay of Bengal during four seasons covered between 2001 and 2006 in order to investigate spatio-temporal variability in their biomass. At these stations, grazing and respiration rates were measured from live zooplankton hauled in from the surface during December 2005. [Source: Journal of Sea Research]
