Abstract : The paper discusses the general pattern of quantitative distribution of benthic fauna in the NW part of the Bering Sea and the basic laws to which the distribution is subjected. There are a number of Soviet papers dealing with the taxonomic groups of benthic fauna in the NW part of the Bering Sea (Makarov, 1941; Baranova, 1957; Levenshteyn, 1958, etc.) as well as with the qualitative and quantitative characterization of benthic fauna of the various areas of the sea (Deryugin and Ivanov, 1937; Makarov, 1937; Vinogradova, 1954; Sokolova, 1954, 1959; Atlas of Charts of Oceanographic data..., 1955). Therefore, the qualitative characterization of the fauna and its groups is not discussed here; only the problems dealing with the quantitative distribution of bottom fauna as whole is treated in this paper.
