This zooplankton investigation in southwestern Norway was started as a part of a monitoring program before a hydroelectrical power plant was built. Field investigations were started in 1972 and finished in 1975. The investigated area consists of three fjord branches, connected with a main fjord which leads to the open sea (Figure 1).
