Abstract
    During a whole year cycle, a survey was made of the popula tion densities of gelatinous macrozooplankton in the Bay of Calvi (Co rsica ) , using Scuba diving. At each appearance of these forms, biomasses were estima ted and residence times measured. The total mass of organisms is falling down to benthic substrates and takes a large place in the amount of sinking organic matter . The mean rate of sinking is about 200 mg D.W./m2.day.
