Copepods constitute the most predominant portion of zooplankton biomass in the Cochin Backwater throughout the year. Their population largely includes omnivores, although carnivores become abundant during the premonsoon months and herbivores during the monsoon months. Seasonal differences in temperature of the estuary are of the order of PC, while the changes in salinity are considerable.
