    The collections of zooplankton made during the period 1962–1964 by members of the PINRO staff (903 samples, 327 stations) served as a basis for this work. As a result of estimating the total number (no/m3) and biomass (mg/m3) of zooplankton, the periods of reproduction and development of the dominant organisms (Calanus finmarchicus, C. glacialis, C. hyperboreus, Oithona similis, etc.) have been established. The composition of the zooplankton and the timing of its development (biological seasons) are affected by a complex system of warm and cold currents and by the ice conditions in the Davis Strait.
