 Biodiversity, the variety of life and understood of species survive. Lancelet plays an important role in marine benthic food chain. A study was carried out to observe the abundance and diversity of marine bottom lancelet and observations on sediment characteristics. The lancelet were collected station 1 at Cooum the maximum of 98.12 No/ m2 was observed in site IV and minimum of 4.22 No/m2 was observed in site II. Station 2 at Muttukadu the maximum of 165.12 No/m2 was observed in site I and minimum of 1.10 No/m2 was observed in site IV. Station 3 at Pondicherry the maximum of 98.8 No/m2 was recorded in site II and minimum of 2.35 No/m2 was recorded in site IV. At all station when compared the maximum species was observed in Muttukadu and minimum in Cooum during the study period.
