Pelagic larvae of bivalve mollusks and polychaetes in winter plankton of the Kara Sea

Pelagic larvae of bivalve mollusks and polychaetes in winter plankton of the Kara Sea Quantitative zooplankton samples were obtained by vertical tows with a Juday plankton net, in the southern Kara Sea, from November 28 to December 11, 2005 (by an expedition of the Murmansk Marine Biological Institute KSC RAS aboard the nuclear ice-breaker “Soviet Union”). The most abundant meroplankton forms were juveniles of Bivalvia and larvae of Polychaeta (the maximum abundances were 106.2 ind/m3 and 7.5 ind/m3, respectively). The results are discussed in relation to changes in the thermal regime of the Arctic Ocean observed during the recent decades. Russian Journal of Marine Biology Springer Journals
