Physical and biological mechanisms giving rise to the marine planktonic aggregations and their inner structure are analyzed. In the daytime, the spatial structure of such "spots" is formed mainly under the action of physical factors. At dark hours, the role of biological (reproductive, migratory) factors in forming the heterogeneity of constituents aggregated within the "spots" increases. Biophysical methods using bioluminescence and sound volume backscattering strength are highly effective for characterizing the small-scale (tens of meter volume) structure of planktonic communities.
