Furthermore, shelf stations showed a higher number of eurybathic species (with a wide bathymetrical range) than did slope stations (Table 5).
Analyzing the vertical distribution of species found in this study (Table 2), we observed the occurrence of shallow-water and eurybathic species (shallow-bathyal, distributions) at the slope stations.
However, the most significant factor for the maintenance of cold-water species, as well as of eurybathic species in the shelf zone, particularly in the north region, might be the penetration of the South Atlantic Central Water (SACW) into the continental shelf regions.
