    Seven species of Eurytemora were collected close to the northwestern Alaskan coast during an oceanographic survey conducted by the Department of Oceanography, University of Washington, from 1 August to 2 September 1959. At least one of the seven species (E. raboti Richard, E. herdmani Thompson & A. Scott, E. americana Williams, E. pacifica Sato, E. gracilicauda Akatova, E. composita Keiser, and E. foveola Johnson) occurred in nine of the ten samples (table I) collected from two lagoons and an inlet along the Alaskan coast; several of the species also occurred in offshore samples (fig. 1). Kivalina Lagoon and Marryatt Inlet had openings to the sea when collections were made by towing a net from a skiff; Krusenstern Lagoon was entirely enclosed when samples were taken by casting a net from shore. Eurytemora americana was also collected from bays on San Juan Island, Wash ington, during July and August of 1958 and I960.
