Abstract
    The marine calanoid copepod Temora longicornis was introduced in saline Lake Grevelingen (S.W.-Netherlands), when the lake was continuously flushed with North Sea water in 1979, to enhance the reduced salinity. Development of the copepod proceeded suboptimally as a consequence of an unfavourable environment in the lake: 1. The phytoplankton assemblage, mainly consisting of crytomonad flagellates, less suitable for growth and reproduction of the adult stages. 2. An acute food shortage occurring at a crucial moment in the development. 3. A. pronounced salinity-and oxygen stratification in June, preventing further development of Temora.
