Abstract
    Quantitative mesozooplankton samples were taken at five locations on a transect from the Gulf of Aden to the central Red Sea during March 1979. The horizontal and vertical distribution of the species was clearly related to hydrographic features. In the Red Sea, the zooplankton standing stock decreased from south to north. Contrary to ealier reports, the largest zooplankton standing stock in both the southern and central Red Sea seems to occur in winter due to the import of organims from the Gulf of Aden with the surface current.
