This report presents a tabulation of all oceanographic and biological data collected during the summers of 1989 and 1990 in two fjords, Sugluk Inlet and Wakeham Bay, located on the Quebec coast in western Hudson Strait. The data set includes information on the vertical distribution of temperature, salinity, nutrients (PO4, NO3), and oxygen as well as total, particulate and dissolved organic carbon, bacterial and phytoplankton counts, chlorophyll a, and the composition and abundance of the phytoplankton and zooplankton communities. In Sugluk Inlet the vertical distribution of temperature, salinity and zooplankton in the vicinity of the fjord sill was examined at intervals during a tidal cycle. The water flow across the sill of Sugluk Inlet was measured during a two week period by means of a moored current meter. (DBO).

Copepodid stages I-V of the arctic marine cyclopoid copepod Cyclopina schneideri T. Scott are partly described and illustrated with emphasis on diagnostic characters. Additional morphological information is given on adults of both sexes, the only stages of the species previously portrayed. Diagnostic characters of adults are included for Cyclopina gracilis Claus, Arcto Cyclopina pagonasta Mohammed and Neuhof, Cyclopinoides longicornis (Boeck), and Cyclopinodes elegans (T. Scott), the other species of the family Cyclopinidae reported to occur in marine waters of the Canadian Arctic©1991 National Research Council Canada

Twenty-five zooplankton stations in eastern Hudson Bay were grouped into four geographical regions on the basis of salinity and temperature. One region, of high salinity and low temperature in deep water, showed a preponderance of arctic zooplankton. The second, with moderate salinity, low temperature, and shallow depths, supported mainly meroplanktonic larvae. The third, less saline and warmer in the upper levels, supported a euryhaline fauna, and the shallower fourth region sustained a fauna with still wider salinity tolerance. Strong pycnocline development supported a near-surface euryhaline fauna below which the arctic faunal element was concentrated in deeper water. Less stratified water, where pycnocline development was slight or absent, inhibited establishment of a euryhaline fauna and permitted a greater near-surface presence of the arctic zooplankton. The major zoogeographic element in eastern Hudson Bay, and probably in most of the bay, is arctic, reflecting the continuity of this area with the primarily arctic waters of the Canadian archipelago and the surface of the Arctic Ocean. Carried cyclonically around the bay, the arctic fauna penetrates the eastern sector, especially north of the Belcher Islands. The euryhaline fauna indicated the influence of James Bay, mainly in the southeastern extremity of the bay©1988 National Research Council Canada
