The barnacles (Cirripedia Thoracica) collected by the Viking expedition in chemobiotic benthic communities of Arctic Ocean-Nyegga area in Norwegian Sea and Håkon Mosby Mud Volcano area in the Barents Sea are investigated. The species (Weltnerium nymphocola in Håkon Mosby Mud Volcano area and Hamatoscalpellum hamatum in Nyegga area) that were found are common inhabitants of the Barents and Norwegian sea benthic communities. The absence of obligatory barnacle fauna that was revealed in investigated chemobiotic benthic communities of the Arctic Ocean shows they are similar to corresponding communities of the Atlantic Ocean, while the specific obligatory barnacle fauna is noted for chemobiotic benthic communities of the Pacific and Indian oceans.
