In this study the seasonality of the mesozooplankton community in spring and summer of 2019 at Midtfjordsskjær (MFS), South Norway, was investigated. Zooplankton samples were collected using a fine mesh sized plankton net (60 μm) and zooplankton were identified by microscopy based on 5 ml subsamples. Total zooplankton abundance ranged from 754 –1620 ind. m-3and peak abundance was found in May. Holoplankton dominated spring and summer communities at MFS constituting between 85,6 –98,8% of total zooplankton.
