Abstract: The microcopepods function as an important herbivorous group
in the planktonic community of the southern, sewage-rich portion of Kaneohe
Bay, Oahu, Hawaiian Islands. Most of the microcopepod biomass was composed
of a rapidly producing species of Paracalanidae. The Paracalanidae population
production rate was calculated with the field population stage composition, the
length: dry weight relationship, and the species development rate in both laboratory
and in situ containers. The population production rate: biomass ratio equalled
78 percent per day during summer 1968. For all of the microcopepods, secondary
production was estimated to be 1.8 mg nitrogen/m3/day.
