Abstract

ENGLISH:The present paper is principally concerned with the geographic distribution of the standing crop and production of phytoplankton at the surface of the eastern Pacific, east of 130°W and between 10°N and 33°S, as reflected by recently collected data. In addition we discuss some of the more obvious, general relationships among thermocline topography, nutrient concentration, and the various trophic levels from primary production to fish production. The limited data do not allow a seasonal study. We have therefore mapped all of the data together regardless of the time of collection, but do not wish to imply that the physical, chemical and biological system is without seasonal or periodic change. SPANISH:Como lo reflejan los datos recientemente recolectados, el presente trabajo está dedicado principalmente a la distribución geográfica de las cosechas estables y a la producción del fitoplancton en la superficie del Pacífico Oriental, al este de los 130°W y entre los 10°N y 33°S. Además discutimos algunas de las relaciones generales más obvias entre la topografía de la termoclina, la concentración de los nutrientes, y los varios niveles tróficos, desde la producción primaria hasta la producción de los peces. Los datos limitados no permiten un estudio estacional. Por lo tanto, hemos combinado todos los datos no tomando en cuenta el tiempo de la recolección, pero no queremos implicar que no existen cambios estacionales o periódicos en el sistema físico, químico y biológico.
