Abstract
    Over the period 1969 to 1980, 34 stations (both inter and subtidal) were visited in Loch Ewe, a fjordic sea loch on the west coast of Scotland. Amphipod densities were determined along with sediment particle size and levels of organic carbon and chlorophyll a. Multivariate analysis of these data indicates that depth and sediment organic carbon levels are the major determinants of amphipod assemblages in the loch, in contrast to previous studies which have variously implicated temperature, sediment granulometry and food availability.
