Abstract : The study is based on data collected by several PINRO expditions in the spring-summer of 1960 and from the summer of 1961 to the summer of 1962 in the NW Atlantic. Data published by American researches have been utilized to present a comprehensive survey of plankton production on the Grand Bank, Flemish Cap and in surrounding areas. The numerical values and variations of zoo- and phytoplankton biomass with seasons and areas are given, singling out the major zooplankton species. In this connection the existence of various water types, their origins and movements, is brought into discussion. Some of the typical data are graphed and tabulated. (Author)
