There are many  plankton research  programmes in which a knowledge of faecal pellets would  be valuable, e.g.,  egg productivity, food  chains,  etc., but present  knowledge is  far from  satisfactory.  Copepod  pellets are probably the most important group.  This sheet attempts to show the little information that is available, and it is also hoped that, in revealing this scarcity, it will stimulate further research into a most useful subject.
