1. Construction modifications which improve the efficiency and broaden the versatility of a recirculating culture system for planktonic copepods are described.

2. Folin protein, dissolved organic carbon and particle content have been measured to determine relative efficiencies of two foam towers under different conditions.

3. A combined settling and filtration tank has been designed to facilitate flow-through adaptation of the culture system.
