Phyto plankton biomass and production in a southern benguela south africa kelp bed system



Phyto plankton biomass and production in a southern benguela south africa kelp bed system



Marine Ecology Progress Series 8(1): 9-14



Seasonal variation in phytoplankton biomass and production in the vicinity of a Southern Benguela kelp bed is studied in relation to the upwelling cycle. Mean phytoplankton biomass was estimated as 56 mg chlorophyll a m-2 and phytoplankton production as 1.13 kg C m-2 yr-1. The top 10 m of the 20 m deep water column monitored contained 83% of the biomass and 76.5% of the production. Daily and seasonal variations in phytoplankton are described.
