Abstract: Spatiotemporal variations in the population ecology of two dominant hermit crabs on four major shores along the Saurashtra coastline (India) off the Arabian Sea during September 2008 to August 2009 had been examined. There were no spatial and temporal variations of the population of hermit crabs in all four sampling stations.  Population dynamics were slightly higher at Dwarka and Mangrol than Veraval and Kodinar coasts. Population dynamics of these species were apparently affected by anthropogenic pressure at Veraval and somewhat lesser degree at Kodinar.
