[One or more species of the genus Podon Lilljeborg, 1853, but probably only P. polyphemoides (Leuckart, 1859), is (are) found in Kuwait waters. The species is more abundant in the coastal areas, especially in Kuwait Bay. This species never exceeded an abundance of 20 000 ind.m−3 but in February 2005, its abundance surprisingly rose to more than 100 000 ind.m−3 at all Kuwait Bay stations for this particular year (2005). The same had occurred earlier at only one of the Kuwait Bay stations in early May 2004, when numbers there almost reached 90 000 ind.m−3. This unusually high abundance raised many questions, which the author tries to find answers for in the present paper. Podon spp. (Lilljeborg, 1853), wahrscheinlich nur die Art P. polyphemoides (Leuckart, 1859), kommt (kommen) in den Gewässern Kuwaits vor. Die Art ist in Küstengewässern, vor allem in der Bucht von Kuwait, sehr verbreitet. Bis vor Kurzem wurden nicht mehr als 20.000 Individuen pro m3 gezählt, aber im Februar 2005 stieg ihre Zahl ungewöhnlich an auf über 100.000 Individuen pro m3 an allen Messstationen in der Bucht von Kuwait in diesem Jahr (2005). Ein ähnlicher Anstieg ereignete sich Anfang Mai 2004 an nur einer der Stationen in der Kuwait Bucht, wo fast 90.000 Individuen pro m3 festgestellt wurden. Diese außergewöhnlich hohen Dichten haben viele Fragen aufgeworfen, die der Autor versucht zu beantworten., One or more species of the genus Podon Lilljeborg, 1853, but probably only P. polyphemoides (Leuckart, 1859), is (are) found in Kuwait waters.
