|Abstract: ||The objective of this study was to describe the composition of two mesozooplankton and ichthyoplankton
estuarine communities in Jandaíra, Bahia (Tabatinga River), impacted by a shrimp farm; and in Conde, Bahia (Itapicuru
River), a pristine estuary. Samples were collected through horizontal hauls using a net (200 μm mesh size), coupled to a
flowmeter, during the ebbing and flooding tides in April, August and December, 2007. In the Tabatinga and Itapicuru Rivers
76 and 92 taxa were registered. The most abundant groups were Pseudodiaptomus richardii and Disco sp. Acartia lilljeborgi
was also dominant at Tabatinga, while Temora sp. and decapod larvae were predominant in Itapicuru River, which also
presented higher densities for most planktonic taxa, particularly fish larvae. A descriptive analysis of the main taxa´s spatial
distribution and new geographical records of Disco sp., P. richardi, Pontellopsis villosa, Macrosetella gracilis, Microsetella
rosea, Gonyiopsillus brasiliensis, Agetus flaccus and Ergasilus caraguatatubensis were presented.|
