During the last fifty years a considerable amount of Work has been done on the copepods of the Indian waters but these investigations deal mainly with the taxonomy and seasonal variations in their abundance and our knowledge of the biology of these is very meagre. Because the copepods play an important role in the economy of the sea, detailed work on the biology of the common copepods was taken up in the Central Marine Fisheries Research Station and the present observations relate to the breeding of copepods in general and its relation to the diatom cycle. The observations are based on regular samples collected from the inshore waters of the Gulf of Mannar and Palk Bay off Mandapam
