Abstract
    The Asiatic copepod, Pseudodiaptomus marinus is recorded for the first time in Todos Santos Bay, Baja California. The first specimens were collected near a newly constructed marina in October 1998, and by February 1999 the P. marinus population colonized the harbours in the bay. Sampling continued until October 2002 and ovigerous females were present in the samples, indicating that P. marinus has adapted to the semi-enclosed environmental conditions of the Todos Santos Bay harbours and had established breeding colonies in the area.
