The aim of this study was to acquire an impression of the crustacean diversity on the coralligenous beds of Markiz Island. For this purpose, four samplings were made with a dredge at two stations, during 2002 and 2003. Analysis of the material sampled yielded a total of 1458 individuals belonging to 122 species and seven groups of Crustacea (Leptostraca, 1; Mysidacea, 4; Amphipoda, 51; lsopoda, 9; Tanaidacea, 2; Cumacea, 10; Decapoda, 45).
