Patterns of distribution and variations of group and monosaccharide compositions of carbohydrates in suspended matter of the Pacific Ocean were studied. It is shown that carbohydrate content of surface ocean waters depends on reproduction of organic matter by phytoplankton. Water-insoluble polysaccharides (average 77.9% of total) predominate in composition of carbohydrates in suspended matter. Water-soluble polysaccharides and oligosaccharides were detected in considerably smaller quantities (average 12.4 and 7.3% respectively). Free monosaccharides were not detected. The main sugars in all isolated groups of carbohydrates of suspended matter are hexoses, which account for 90.8% in oligosaccharides, 64.9% in water-soluble polysaccharides, and 69.8% in water-insoluble polysaccharides. Determination of monosaccharide composition of carbohydrates in suspension showed that apparently they basically consist of mixture of reserve and structural polysaccharides (or their residues) of phytoplankton organisms.
