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.
