Abstract

Distribution and abundance of lanternfishes of the family Myctophidae collected from the eastern Arabian Sea and the Bay of Bangal during cruises 1-15 of FORV Sagar Sampada are presented . This investigation is based on the lKMT samples from the DSL which was found in the depth ranges 200-540m during day and 0-75m during night. In the total biomass of the DSL, fish formed only 6% and the rest was constituted by the plankton. The fish fauna of the DSL comprised of meso and bathypelagic forms like myctophids, gonostomids and stomiformes.
