The vertical distribution of three species of copepods has been determined from about 400 net hauls. This is analyzed in terms of temperature, illumination, pressure and a seasonal cycle probably associated with successive broods. Variations of behavior within the populations are demonstrated
as well as diurnal rhythms in behavior.
