Abstract
    The secondary production of the harpacticoid copepod Paronychocamptus nanus (Sars, 1908) in a shallow, brackish-water pond was estimated during spring and summer 1980. The population was sampled every 5 d. Production of copepodites and adults, calculated by the size-frequency method, amounts to 1.91 g m-2 dry wt over the sampling period (March-November).
    Egg production is 1.23 g m-2; naupliar production is roughly
    1.09 g m-2. The production efficiency (ratio of production to production plus respiration) of copepodites and adults is 0.37; for the total population it is 0.42.P:B of the population is 24.45 over the sampling period, or 3.2 per generation.
