Abstract
    The neritic copepod fauna of the Lebanese coastal waters has been described from both vertical and horizontal subsurface hauls at different stations for three consecutive years (November 1969 to December 1972). The seasonal variation has been outlined in relation to hydrographic conditions. A total of 82 species belonging to 39 genera have been recorded, most of them are neritic, temperate and subtropical forms. The greater bulk of the copepod population comprised 15 common species. Several species reported as Atlantic and bathypelagic were found in lower numbers. The copepods have been divided into four gro'ups based on the seasonal variations in abundance. Six out of 82 species are recorded only in the Eastern Mediterranean, 4 are new records for the Mediterranean. The 6 species have an Indo-Pacific origin and have migrated through the Suez Canal. Some other species, reported as Atlantic have been recorded in this area and their role as hydrologic indicators of the current flowing into the Mediterranean reaching the Levant waters is suggested.
