ABSTRACT

It was shown that only three species, Mytilus galloprovincialis, Mytilaster lineatus, and Balanus improvisus, are the major contributors in forming the bulk of benthic invertebrate larvae in Sevastopol Bay. The two maxima (vernal and autumnal) in the numbers of mussel and Balanus (acorn barnacle) larvae have been registered, while Mytilaster produced only one (aestival) peak. This regularity allows them to obviate the necessity in food competition.
