zooplankton – autumn 2012

From Rachel Harmer …

Since autumn, numbers of most things have dropped off, except for the copepod Oncaea, where we have observed almost double usual numbers at around 3000 per m3. Looking back at last winter, I reported high numbers of Solmaris corona, a type of jellyfish, these have been completely absent this year, and Liriope, another abundant jellyfish last year has been much lower in number.
