Although data were collected for two years, 1970 and 1971, the major portion of this research was carried out the second year. This research took place in western Lake Superior and most of the data were collected at two stations, Larsmont and Stony Point, which were twenty miles northeast of Duluth. The major purposes were to study the productivity and the vertical, seasonal and horizontal distribution of the crustacean zooplankton population in western Lake Superior. A limited study of the biology of the copepod, Limnocalanus macrurus, was also conducted. Productivity differences were found between the various sites and stations. These differences point to the lack of homogeneity in the horizontal distribution of the crustacean zooplankton population and support the phenomenon of 'zooplankton patchiness'. Productivity levels at the Little Marais and Sugar Loaf Cove area were from one-third to two-thirds of those at Larsmont and Stony Point. The Larsmont station was slightly more productive than Stony Point.
