Abstract:This report deals with the chaetognaths collected
by the "R/ V Argo" during the Monsoon
Expedition in the Indian Ocean in 1960 and
1961. The Monsoon collections extended from
about 8°S to 42°S (Fig. 1); that is, the region
roughly limited by the Equatorial Countercurrent
and the Subantarctic West Wind Drift ( the
Indian Central waters extending to the Subtropical
Convergence); and also the Indonesian
seas and the South Australian waters. This report
includes only data from the Indian Ocean.
Data from collections made by the same Expedition
in the Pacific have been added to the
study of the chaetognaths of the Pacific. However,
data derived from the Pacific are used here
also in discussing the distribution of the species.
The Monsoon Expedition covered in part the
regions surveyed for chaetognaths by the Gazelle,
Gauss, Sealark, Siboga, and Snellius expeditions,
with the following exceptions: the Bay
of Bengal, west coast of Ceylon, and waters of
Somalia and eastern Africa.
