  • Abstract: AbstractFrom July to August 2007 and June to July 2008, the horizontal/geographical changes in the zooplankton community in the Bering and Chukchi Seas were studied. The geographical patterns, which were common for these two years, were observed for salinity, chlorophylla(Chl.a), zooplankton chaetognaths, hydrozoans and the whole zooplankton community. Among them, the patterns of salinity and Chl.awere related with the horizontal distribution of the water masses. The distributions of the two carnivorous taxa were correlated with their prey (copepods or barnacle larvae). The analysis of the structural equation model (SEM) revealed that the horizontal distribution of the zooplankton abundance and biomass were governed by the different taxa. Thus, the zooplankton abundance was governed by the numerically dominant but smaller-bodied taxa, such as the barnacle larvae and copepodPseudocalanusspp., while the zooplankton biomass was determined by the large-bodied copepods, such asCalanus glacialis/marshallaeandEucalanus bungii.
