    As a part of the international krill synoptic survey, the National Antarctic Scientific Center of Ministry of Education and Science of Ukraine has conducted research program on mesozooplankton studies in the Bransfield Strait (CCAMLR subarea 48.1) during “More Sodruzhestva” voyage from 13 to 18th of November 2018. The stratified samples were done at the same stations as for krill hydroacoustic survey in order to map vertical distribution, abundance and species composition of zooplankton, mostly copepods. Here we present our preliminary results for the station_ID 1735 (62009'883"S, -64092'767"W) according to the krill synoptic survey protocol.
