A total of 44 plankton samples was collected in the Barents Sea during a 1963 NAVOCEANO survey aboard USS TANNER AGS 15. At least three groups of well-defined plankton associations in the Barents Sea are indicated from analysis of the samples. A new species of benthic mite, genus Copidognathus, was discovered in the Barents Sea plankton samples. The name Copidognathus spenceri will be submitted for this species.
