Abstract
    Zooplankton species diversity in the Celtic Sea in August 1982 was low; two species of copepod and two species of euphausiid accounted for 90 to 95% of the biomass sampled by a 280 mu m-mesh net. Some 75% of the primary production was by phytoplankton smaller than 5 mu m. The demands of both the macrozooplankton and the microzooplankton have been examined. The data do not appear to support the ideas of a significant flow of energy through the "microbial loop" in the Celtic Sea in August.
