Occurrences, abundance and seasonal distribution of the benthic fauna of the mudbank area at Alleppey were investigated. Ihe substratum at the mudbank area being of an unconsolidated and unstable nature due to the fresh supply of sediments and their periodic movement, it was thought that the fauna therein may be of a recent colonisation and a study on the animal- sediment relationship would be of interest. This was well established during the present studies with regard to the occurrence and numerical abundance of species and the benthic population in general.
