Twenty different species were identified. Among these, Atergatis roseus (Rüppell, 1830), Charybdis helleri (A. Milne-Edwards, 1867), Charybdis longicollis Leene, 1938, Ixa monodi Holthuis & Gottlieb, 1956, Myra subgranulata Kossmann, 1877, and Portunus pelagicus (Linnaeus, 1758) are of Indo-Pacific origin. Nine species, Dromia personata (Linnaeus, 1758), Eriphia verrucosa (Forskål, 1775), Ethusa mascarone (Herbst, 1785), Liocarcinus depurator (Linnaeus, 1758), Liocarcinus navigator (Herbst, 1794), Macropodia rostrata (Linnaeus, 1761), Maja squinado (Herbst, 1788), Pachygrapsus marmoratus (Fabricius, 1787), and Portumnus latipes (Pennant, 1777) were recorded for the first time from this bay.
