Abstract

The Euphausiac(?a an order of Ihe sub-class Malacostraca (Class : Crustacea) is an abundantly occurring zooplankton group in the EEZ of India. Understanding the importance of this group in the marine economy, studies on their various aspects have been carried out in the Indian Ocean since 1886 and in the Indian waters since 1966. While there is substantial amount of knowledge on the distribution, ecology and biology oj various species of euphausiids oJ the southwest coast and Lakshadweep seas there is dearth of information on euphausiids from the other parts of the EEZ. The present paper reviews the information available on euphausiids of the Indian ocean in general and the Indian EEZ in particular with special reference to the contributions of CM.F.R.I.
