Abstract:  To perceive the spatial and temporal distribution and ecology of Recent benthic Ostracoda, 56 inner shelf sediment and 60 bottom water samples were collected from the Bay of Bengal, off Karikkattukuppam, Tamil Nadu, starting from October 1995 to July 1996. Living and total (living + dead) population sizes were determined. Temporally, both living and total population sizes were found to be more during April, followed by July, which may be attributed to high temperature, salinity and dissolved oxygen of the bottom water, high calcium carbonate and low organic matter content of the sediments. The most congenial substrate for better thriving of the fauna was found to be silty-sand. The optimum ecological conditions for the abundance of standing crop of 8 persistent taxa of the study are presented.
