Abstract: In the present study total five stations were selected for collection of zooplankton (copepods) out of these, 3 stations were within the creek and 2 stations were in offshore region. Copepods formed the most dominant group of zooplankton sample at all the stations, at station 1 their population was in the range of 5845 to 54472 / 100m3 (av.36882.8 / 100m3), at station 2 12166 to 65700 / 100m3 ( av. of 32472.38 /100m3) , at station 3 17263 to 67652/ 100m3 (av.35385.2 /100m3), at station 4 12064 to 48990/ 100m3 (av. 31924.73/ 100m3) and at station 5 7060 to 41528 / 100m3 (av.25657.47/100m3). Species composition of copepods was evaluated based on analyses of sample from station 1 and 5, representing the outer and interior zone respectively. A total of 61 species belonging to the 20 genera and 11 families at station 1 and 48 species belongs to 15 genera and 8 families at station 5. Calanoida became the most dominant group in copepod population.
