dc.description.abstract The distribution of calanoid copepods is discussed based on the subsorted taxa of the International Indian Ocean Expedition samples. Of the 32 calanoid taxa only 17 groups were considered as significant components. The family Eycalanidae was the most abundant group contributing to 31.09% of the population. Genus Pleuromamma and family Euchaetidae constituted 15% and 13% respectively. Among the more rare taxa, Tortanus was observed in the Bay of Bengal, Pseudodiaptomidae were totally confined to the NW Indian Ocean, and Metridia was predominant near South Africa. Calanoides occured very scattered, with some large catches off Java and Oman, upwelling areas during the summer monsoon. High densities of all the major groups were encountered in the equatorial and northern Indian Ocean, especially in the productive areas
