Production, oxygen uptake, and sinking velocity of copepod fecal pellets egested by Temora longicornis were measured using a nanoflagellate (Rhodomonas sp.), a diatom (Thalassiosira weissflogii), or a coccolithophorid (Emiliania huxleyi) as food sources. Fecal pellet production varied between 0.8 pellets ind**-1 h**-1 and 3.8 pellets ind**-1 h**-1 and was significantly higher with T. weissflogii than with the other food sources. Average pellet size varied between 2.2 x 10**5 µm**3 and 10.0 x 10**5 µm**3. Using...
