Description 
Summary

As part of the project for the study of the ecological conditions at a fixed station situated at Loch Ewe, samples and research were performed in order to know the seasonal variability of primary production and its control by means of zooplankton grazing. Seasonal follow-ups were carried out on primary production, phytoplankton biomass, particulate organic carbon, and ingestion and respiration of the main groups formed by copepods of the genera Temora, Pseudocalanus and Acartia.
