During recent faunistic samplings, a total of 57 species of decapod crustaceans was collected in the coastal waters of the Historical National Park located on the Gallipoli Peninsula (including the northeastern Aegean Sea and Dardanelles). The samples were taken at depths ranging between W and 28 m at 10 different stations chosen along the coasts of the peninsula in July, 2005. A total of 1425 individuals belonging to 57 species was identified. The dominance of the species varies in each ecological zone; the caridean, Philocheras trispinosus (Hailstone, 1835) was commonest, with a dominance value of 13.79%.
