Abstract Winter season variations of physicochemical parameters of water of coral reef were studied at three different sites of Poshitra cluster in the Gulf of Kachchh GoK India. These sites come under Marine National Park and Sanctuary and it is demarked as Marine Protected Areas MPAs. The study sites were selected on the basis of their ecological importance. These sites are having rich marine diversity and especially good coral presence. The study was carried out on the monthly basis from Nov11 to Feb12. Some of the water parameters are analyzed on site and others in lab. Winter season variations of different parameters investigated were as follows pH 8.02-9.89 Temperature 19.90-29.40 C Dissolve oxygen 5.20-8.60 mgl Turbidity 3.24-20.80 NTU and Salinity 33.8-40.0 ppt.
