Abstract

The cirripedes have a practical importance chiefly from the profile growth forms on all submarine objects. In some places the large forms of Balanus are eaten, the flesh resembling that of the lobster.
There is a dearth of literature on the cirriped fauna of Pakistan. They are still practically unknown. However, some work has been done on cirripedes by Annandale early in 1909, then by Moazzam and Rizvi in 1978 and 1982; Ahmed et al, 1982; Mustaquim and Javed, 1993 and lately by Javed and Mustaquim in 1994. Some unofficial reports of barnacles have been published (MRC Newsletter 1995), including one unidentified (may belong to Acasta) embedded in coenosarc of gorgonid collected as epizoic on a majid crab Camposcia retusa. The present report is another of gorgonia associated barnacle, collected from a dry piece of colony obtained from a fishing boat at Bulleji (Karachi) in 1998. The collection is housed in MRC under the catalogue No. MRC CRI 6.
