Abstract

The occurrence, distribution and abundance of 14 species of Chaetognatha, belonging to the genera, Sagitta Quoy and Gaimard (1827), Pterosagitta Ritter-Zahony (1911) and Krohnitta Ritter-Zahony (1911), in space and time along the west coast of India, collected during the cruises of KN.Varuna between December, 1966 and December, 1967, are discussed. Attention is also drawn to the possibility of using Sagitta decipiens Vawln (1905) as an indicator of upwelling along the South-West Coast of India.
