Abstract

The composition and distribution of near-bottom amphipods in the southern part of the central Barents Sea were studied based on quantitative materials collected by expeditions of the Murmansk Marine Biological Institute in 1996–1997. A total of 144 amphipod species (on average 13 ± 1 species per station) were found; the average biomass was 0.49 ± 0.07 g/m2, average abundance 106 ± 15 specimens/m2. Boreal-Arctic (46%), Arctic (17%), and boreal (21%) species were predominant among the amphipod fauna. The present results were compared with the data for 1968–1970.
