|Abstract:||Copepods (31 species belonging to 14 families), constituted the major component (94.72-99.15%) of zooplankton in Mandarmani canal, a tidal creek opening into the Bay of Bengal. Salinity was the most important environmental variable that influenced the copepod distribution and based on their salinity tolerance, the copepod population was categorised into 3 different groups like perennial euryhaline forms, seasonal stenohaline forms and casual limnetic migrants. Seasonal bimodality was observed in their standing stock. Six major families (Acartiidae, Eucalanidae, Paracalanidae, Pontellidae, Pseudodiaptomidae and Temoridae) showed varying degrees of coexistence within the creek.|
