Monthly variability of zooplankton and ichthyoplankton abundance and composition were studied in 6 stations in the Gulf of Tunis between February 2003 and January 2004. Plankton trawls were horizontal, in surface and at night. Study area seems to be influenced by climatic conditions and the outflow of Majreda River that affect the surface temperature and salinity. Copepods, with many abundance peaks in the year, formed the most abundant group (84%) followed by cladocerans (8%) and chaetognaths (3%). The appendicularians, cladocerans and medusae had swarms in the summer, the creseis and the chaetognths in the autun and the zoae larvae in the spring. The highest fish spawning periods was in summer then the highest larva abundance was in winter and summer.Original Abstract: De Fevrier 2003 a Janvier 2004, douze campagnes mensuelles ont ete effectuees dans 6 stations dans le golfe de Tunis pour l'etude du zooplancton et de l'ichtyoplancton.
