This paper presents the numerical simulations of the influence of food ingestion by a herbivorous copepod on phytoplankton and zooplankton biomasses (PZB) in the sea. The numerical studies were carried out using the <i>phytoplankton-zooplankton-nutrient-detritus </i><b>PhyZooNuDe</b> biological upper layer model. This takes account both of fully developed primary production and regeneration mechanisms and of daily migration of zooplankton. In this model the zooplankton is treated not as a 'biomass' but as organisms having definite patterns of growth, reproduction and mortality. Assuming also that {<b>Zoop</b>} is composed of<i>i</i> cohorts of copepods with weig...
