Short summary
We performed high-frequency samplings of zooplankton community and gut pigment of copepods in the Chukchi Sea. Zooplankton showed no changes with a strong wind event and dominant copepods prepared for diapause. Yet, feeding activity of the copepods increased as a result of temporal phytoplankton bloom, enhanced by the wind event. Because of the long generation length of copepods, a smaller effect was detected for their abundance, population, lipid accumulation and gonad maturation.
