The present historical paper deals with the pelagic Polychaetes except the Tomopterids collected on the cruises of the "Thor", 1908-1910 in the Mediterannenan and adjacent waters. more

The tables included in this report present also the scientific results from other research vessels such as "Dana" (years 1921 and 1930) and "S/S Pangan" (1911).

The majority of the catches were made with "Petersen's Young-fish Trawl" mostly with a diameter of 200cm and 330cm and stramin nets with dimeters of 100, 150 and 200cm: the fishing parts of these consist of stramin, a coarse canvas with abt 20 threads to 3cm. A few samples containing Polychaeta were taken with other apparatus, viz.5 samples with ring-trawl 130cm, 200cm and 300cm in diameter; 2 samples with open conical silk-net 100cm in diameter ;one with Nansen's closing net, 50 cm in diameter and finally one with rectangular dredge opening 27x117 cm.
