In a laboratory experiment the food selectivity and the daily food ration of two species of Cyclopidae: Mesocyclops leuckartii (Claus) and M. oithonoides (Sars) were estimated in relation to small zooplankton (rotifers, protozoans, nauplii). Also the possibilities of feeding on plant food (Ceratium) by these predators were investigated. The data allowed to determine the pressure of Mesocyclops on small zooplankton of some Masurian lakes.
