Weighted mean depth of zooplankton measured during various cruises to the Baltic Sea, supplement to: Schulz, Jan; Hirche, Hans-Jürgen (2007): Living below the halocline: strategies of deep-living species in the highly stratified brackish Bornholm Basin (central Baltic Basin).

Jan Schulz & Hans-Jürgen Hirche
The Baltic Sea is the largest brackish water area of the world. On the basis of the data from 16 cruises, we show the seasonal and vertical distribution patterns of the appendicularians Fritillaria borealis, Oikopleura dioica and the cyclopoid copepod Oithona similis, in the highly stratified Bornholm Basin. These species live at least temporarily below the permanent halocline and use different life strategies to cope with the brackish environment. The cold-water species F. borealis is...
