            Marine planktons are the primary producers of the organic matter in the ocean and their important ecological rules are well established. They represent the base of the food chains of most marine organisms such as fishes and other sea animals.Serra Island is undergoing strong economical and tourists activities that cause several negative ecological impacts on the surrounding environment. Furthermore, protection of marine lives and their biodiversity conservation is of vital importance. Therefore, the present work was initiated as a part of future monitoring plan of marine ecosystem in this area to study the biodiversity and abundance of marine planktons in the regional sea water of Serra Island. Using a microscope equipped with digital camera several species of marine planktons were identified and documented from the collected sea water samples. It was found that these planktons were belonged to different main groups which included: Sarcodina, Arthoropoda, Rotifera, Tunicata ,Ciliophora and Nematoda.
