It was described the distribution and abundance of the developmental stages of the larvae of Munida gregaria, Neotrypaea uncinata and Sergestes arcticus, captured in five oceanographic cruises (Cimar 1, 4, 8, 9 and 10), which sampled in the southern Chilean fjords, located between Puerto Montt (41°30’S) and Laguna San Rafael (46°30’S). Based on the participation of different water masses, oceanographic characterized three areas in which it was determined the abundance and frequency of occurrence of the developmental stages of the larvae of the three species caught in the different samples. Were applied statisticians related abundances and frequency of occurrence of larval developmental stages, defined areas and oceanographic sampling years, which allowed discrimination spawning and larval dispersal potential of the species studied in the study.
