dc.description.abstract The lipid content, class composition and fatty acid composition of eight euphausiid and two large copepod species were investigated from samples taken in the sub-Antarctic in the region of the Prince Edward Islands. The lipid contents of the euphausiids were low compared to congeners from higher latitudes, especially considering that the samples were taken in late summer. The copepods were richer in lipids. Surface chlorophyll-a in the sub-Antarctic is low when compared to the oceanic fronts to the north and south, suggesting that this region is a less productive feeding environment for zooplankton. Most species in this region occur here at the extreme of their known ranges. en_ZA
