Abstract: The distribution patterns of zooplankton biomass were studied using samples collected in vertical hauls during four oceanographic cruises in the Straits of Malacca between November 1998 and August 2000 with 140 ยตm-mesh and 45-cm diameter NORPAC net. The average zooplankton biomass during Cruise III (post-SW monsoon) and IV (SW monsoon) was almost twice that of Cruise I (NE monsoon) with maximum zooplankton biomass occurring during the Cruise IV. Biomass was generally higher in waters closer to the near-coastal areas than in the neritic areas. Higher zooplankton biomass values occurred in the central part of the Straits compared to other areas, although spatial and temporal variations of biomass were not significant. Run off of major rivers and the extensive mangrove forests in the coastal areas might have influenced higher biomass in the central part of the Straits.
