    The nematode assemblages along a deep-sea transect in the Mediterranean are composed of individuals that are as small as those found in other areas at much greater depth. This may be related to the low surface primary production since chloroplastic pigment equivalent (CPE) values in the sediments are low as well. A significant decrease of both nematode size and sedimentary CPE values with increasing water depth was found. At all water depths average nematode length increases with depth in the sediment (0-2 cm) due to the decreasing abundance of smaller nematodes.
