    Cladocera of the Gulf of Mexico and the Caribbean Sea have been studied on the basis of samples collected during the Cooperative Investigations of the Caribbean and Adjacent Regions (CICAR). Although the distribution of Cladocera is mainly coastal, one species, Evadne tergestina has been found offshore also, where it may establish seasonal populations. E. spinifera was recorded in the area for the first time. Penilia avirostris was found mainly in coastal waters, while no Podon were recorded among the sorted Cladocera. This work makes clear that adequate sampling in space and time is required in the area in order to obtain more comprehensive information on this group.
