Abstract

Zooplankton species found during studies of the zooplankton of the southeastern coastal waters of Tasmania are recorded, and discussed taxonomically where appropriate. A brief account is given of the distribution of the 71 pelagic copepods, eight euphausids, one sergestid, 11 chaetognaths and seven pelagic tunicates. Except for two copepod species which are assigned only to a genus, the remaining are positively identified to species level. Amongst the species recorded, 22 copepods are new to Australian waters whereas 38 copepods, one euphausid and two chaetognaths are new records for Tasmanian waters. Keys to the copepod genera and species are also given.
