The periodic swarming of the reproductive individuals of various nereid worms to the surface waters is a well known phenomenon reported from many parts of the globe. An analysis of the factors involved in the periodicity in marine invertebrates in general has been given in the review by Korringa (1947). Other later studies in connection with the problem of marine fouling, such as by Dew and Wood (1955), have also indicated the periodicity in spawning and settlement of larval forms.
