Based on the compilation of numerous data obtained with various methods, the paper discusses primary productivity (PP) in the Atlantic Sector of the Southern Ocean. Deviations from zonality law were observed in the waters of frontal zones, on the Patagonia Shelf, and in neritic areas. The spatial heterogenities in PP distribution is determined by structural particularities of the horizontal circulation of waters and the respective distribution of different water masses and their modifications. Factors determining PP in the region, as well as correlation of PP and productivity on higher trophic levels, are discussed
