A brief summary is given of studies which were conducted on the behavior of dinoflagellates Gyrodinium at salinity interfaces. The cell readily crosses a salinity differential of 5 against gravity, but the tendency to cross decreases as difference increases. Even the most marked salinity difference 20 appears to be no barrier to crossing with gravity, although when the cell moves across a difference higher than 15 it may be inactivated in such a way as to be trapped just below the interface.
