Ichthyoplankton Community Structure in Relation with Zooplankton Component in the Romanian Black Sea
AbstractIchthyoplankton and zooplankton were studied from samples collected from the Romanian Black Sea area, in 2019. The aim of the paper is to show the interrelation between ichthyoplankton, microzooplankton, mesozooplankton and gelatinous zooplankton and to analyse the spatio-temporal distribution of these components. The communities were analysed both from qualitative and quantitative point of view, giving an insight over the component dynamics. Prey-predator relation is strongly related to marine organism’s development stage, environmental conditions, trophic interactions. The reproduction of the fish species and the development of the larvae is closely related to the environmental conditions, the breeder’s stock state, the trophic base, but also to the relation between prey-predator.
