Abstract: The present investigation was carried out to study the present ecological status of Cerethium caeruleum at Dwarka coast, Gujarat, India. C. caeruleum is a dominating mollusc species that are found mostly on the upper middle littoral zone as well as lower middle littoral zone of the intertidal substratum. As they are covered with a very hard and solid shell, fluctuation in physical condition hardly brings any change on their distribution. It was observed from the present investigation that the frequency values did not show any definite trend at the sites. It is evident that there is no significant difference of the population abundance existed between the sites as well as among the seasons.
