Abstract An attempt is made to calculate the specific production of major zooplankton groups using a physiological method proposed by Winberg. The present report is based on material obtained from 50 stations in the Aegean and Adriatic Seas; Tunisian Strait and Algerian-Provencal basin. The algorithm of Zharov, used by the author, includes the data biomass, abundance, relation between metabolism at given temperature and organism, dependence of production upon metabolism, and the food utilization coefficient for growth.
