Abstract: An assessment of demersal macrofauna for 7 years (2005-2011) through continuous survey (250 trawls, 4 beach seines) with total effort of 424 hours along the bay estuarine and nearshore waters of Goa, yielded 84 new records for the region. Among these, Charybdis (Charybdis) goaensis was new to science. In addition, two species (Thysanophrys armata and Callionymus sublaevis) were found to be first records for the Indian waters, seven were new to the West coast of India and 74 others were new reports for this region.
