Gonad maturity stages of Microcalanus spp. in the Southern Ocean


Females were stained in a Borax carmin solution for the exam- ination of the gonad maturation. Four different developmental stag- es of gonads were determined according to Corkett and McLaren (1978) - stage 1: unripe; stage 2: semiripe; stage 3: ripe; stage 4: spent. For further information see Schnack-Schiel and Mizdalski (1994).
