The objectives of this study were to studied benthos biodiversity and total organic matter in Pattani Bay. The study area had been divided into 7 stations. respectively. Station 6 had significantly higher (P < 0.05) density of benthos as 195.03 ± 156.52 individual/ m2 than other stations. Station 4 had the highest diversity index as 0.76 ± 0.58 and signifi cantly greater (P < 0.5) diversity index of benthos than station 6 and7. The study reflected that the water quality in Pattani Bay were within the Thailand National Water Quality Classification for coastal purposes.
