Note(s): Repeated observations and collections of appendicularian houses (ca 1–10 cm dia.) from Johnson-Sea-Link submersibles indicate these conspicuous mucoid aggregates (0.08–0.49 houses m−3) were a common component of the biodetritus at midwater depths (490–760 m) in Bermuda and the Bahamas during May and November 1984, respectively. Microorganisms and olive-green bodies found on these houses were 1–3 orders of magnitude more numerous than in an equal volume of surrounding seawater.
