The results of research of quantitative and species diversity of zooplankton in the waters near the island of Galindez (archipelago Argentine Islands), where the Ukrainian Antarctic Station (UAS) Vernadsky is situated, were made. The materials were collected in the 11 - 12th Ukrainian Antarctic expeditions (February 2006 - February 2008).
