P. Haridas, T.S.S. Rao

Abstract



Pelagic harpacticoid copepods have been studied from the International Indian Ocean Expedition collections. Macrosetella gracilis and Miracia efferata were the most common species of harpacticoids with high densities near land masses. Other three species, namely Clytemnestra scutellata, Aegisthus mucronatus and Macrosetella norvegica occurred in coastal as well as in oceanic realms
