Abstract The distribution of chlorophyll in the Bay of Bengal was determined between 25 October to 21 December 2007, during the joint research survey on the Ecosystem-Based Fishery Management in the Bay of Bengal by the M.V. SEAFDEC. Chlorophyll-a from twenty-four stations in the study area were investigated using spectrophotometer. Results showed that the concentrations of chlorophyll-a in the eastern Bay of Bengal was 0.0375-0.5207 mg m-3. In the northern Bay of Bengal it was 0.0365-1.1162 mg m-3. While in the western Bay of Bengal the range was 0.0357-0.1839 mg m-3. The spatial distribution of chlorophyll-a was similar pattern to the salinity and the highest concentration mostly confined at 10 m. The surface layer taken at the low latitude stations had higher concentrations than at the high latitude stations. Furthermore, river discharge with high turbidity may impede photosynthesis activity of phytoplankton in this area.
