          Abstract

          A partir de 75 muestras de zooplancton recolectadas durante el periodo febrero-diciembre de 1997 en la Bahía de la Ascensión, Quintana Roo, México se analizó la distribución, abundancia y composición de las medusas. Se identificaron 15 especies de medusas, Clytia mccradyi fue la más abundante, seguida por Helgicirrha schulzei. Trece de ellas representan nuevos registros geográficos para la Bahía de la Ascensión. Las mayores abundancias se registraron en diciembre (16661 org/1000 m³) y febrero (10714 org/1000 m³). Las estaciones 2, 7 y 12 fueron las que presentaron menor número de especies (9, 6 y 7 especies, respectivamente). La fauna local de medusas representa una mezcla de especies neríticas y oceánicas cuya distribución posiblemente se encuentra influenciada por los patrones de circulación locales.

          From 75 zooplankton samples collected during february-december 1997 in Ascension Bay, Quintana Roo, Mexico, the distribution, composition, and abundance of the medusan fauna were analyzed. Fifteen species were identified; Clytia mccradyi was the most abundant, followed by Helgicirrha schulzei. Thirteen of them represent new geographic records for the Ascension Bay. The highest medusan densities were recorded in December (16661 org/1000 m³) and February (10714 org/1000 m³). The lowest numbers of species were registered in stations 2, 7 and 12 (9, 6 and 7 species, respectively). The local medusan fauna was represented by a mixture of neritic and oceanic forms which distribution is probably influenced by local circulation patterns
