Abstract: Salinity was observed as an important controlling factor in determining the species composition and succession. Temperature was found to be a co-variate with other factors and was not having direct influence on phytoplankton abundance. The population density showed marked seasonal variations. Diatoms were dominant followed by dinoflagellates. The genus Chaetoceros was represented with a maximum number of 17 species. Asterionella japonica, Coscinodiscus marginatus, Nitzschia closterium, Thalassiothrix frauenfeldii, Skeletonema costatum Ceratium furca and Peridinium depressum occurred almost all through the year and contributed substantially to the phytoplankton density.
