A series of experimental catches between 500 and 1050 m was carried out in the Sardinian Channel (mid-western Mediterranean sea) to obtain information on the distribution of several species of decapod crustaceans. The collections were made by bottom trawls in two different periods, summer and winter, during the years 1989, 1990, and 1991. Forty-seven species of Decapoda were collected. The most common species caught in all the strata examined are Aristeus antennatus, Plesionika martia, P. acanthonotus, and Polycheles typhlops. Acanthephyra eximia and Cymonomus granulatus have been caught in this area for the first time. Thirty-four percent of the species show a seasonal variation in bathymetric distribution. Below 650-700 m the species-composition changes and the number of species decreases.
