Abstract

Abundance and distribution of planktonic cephalopods collected from the operation of Bongo net in the west coast of India including the Lakshndweep Sea, cast coast, Andaman and Nicobar Islands and the Central Equatorial waters have been studied. Relatively greater abundance of cephalopods was noticed on the west coast and Andaman and Nicobar Islands. Their occurrence was more prominent in March - June and August- December on the West coast, and March- September on the cast coast. Centrally the night hauls were richer than those taken during day. There was not much difference in the relative abundance of planktonic cephalopods in the neritic and oceanic waters except on the west coast where the neritic waters arc slightly richer.
