- The individual respiration rates of five biomass-dominant copepods (Calanoides acutus, Rhincalanus gigas, Metridia gerlachei, Calanus propinquus and Paraeuchaeta antarctica), and Euphausia crystallorophias furcilia, from the Amundsen Sea, West Antarctica, were determined using a Clark-type oxygen microsensor affording high temporal resolution. Measurements were conducted on specimens collected from waters exhibiting a very narrow temperature range (-1.68 to -1.32 °C), at sites located between 71 and 75°S, during the summer (31 January - 20 March 2012). A short incubation time (3 h) was sufficient to reveal significant declines in dissolved oxygen concentrations by 12 - 45%. The respiration rates of the copepods and E. crystallorophias furcilia were within the ranges of previously reported values. The respiration rates of relatively large-bodied species were rather low, whereas the smaller species generally exhibited higher respiration rates. The data show that this simple microsensor technique is a useful high-resolution non-invasive means of investigating the metabolism of zooplankton in the Southern Ocean. The method could be used in other situations when such information is required.
