Zooplankton has been sampled monthly since 1969 at Station Z off the Northumberland coast. Seven copepod species were chosen as potential indicators of specific water masses. Data have been analysed to provide information about seasonal and interannual changes in the zooplankton community with special reference to the indicator taxa and to the possible role of hydrographic and climate drivers, including variations in the position of the Gulf Stream North Wall position and the North Atlantic Oscillation. Results show that, at this Northumberland coastal station, some copepod species are likely to be good indicators of water-mass influence and changes. © 2004 International Council for the Exploration of the Sea.
