Abstract: Seasonal variation in hydrography and zooplankton from 3 stations (off Rozi, Port Okha and Dwarka) in the coastal waters off Saurashtra was studied for 2 yr. Primary peaks of Zooplankton were recorded during south-west monsoon (July-October) and secondary peak in north-east monsoon (January) in both the years. Predominant copepods were confined to 8 genera, viz. Paracalanus Boeck, Acrocalanus Giesbrecht, Centropages Herrick, Acartia Dana, Oithona Baird. Oncaea Phillippi, Corycaeus Dana and Eterpina Norman. The major planktonic larvae were of copepoda, mollusca, cirripedia, decapoda and polychaeta.
