Abstract
    The fauna of Mid-Atlantic Ridge hydrothermal vents is dominated by species of bresiliid shrimp, in marked contrast to that of Pacific vents where vestimentiferan and alvinellid worms predominate. The shrimp have small eggs and release planktotrophic larvae into the water column, but the timing of the release and the later development and dispersal of the larvae have not been determined. This paper presents a summary of the work that has been undertaken to sample these animals quantitatively in midwater and discusses particular issues highlighted by the results.
