A macrobenthic faunal survey was conducted to elucidate the species diversity and their distribution on three different habitats (oyster bed, bare mud flat, salt marsh) in Cheuk-do island, Incheon, Korea. Two surveys were carried out by a hand corer on ebb tide and a beach-seine net together with an additional fish trap on high tide in October, 2012 and June, 2013 respectively. A total of 82 species including 6 species of fish were collected. Among three habitats, the most diverse was the bare mud flat with 48 species, followed by oyster bed with 42 species and the salt marsh with 12 species respectively. Species composition was clearly different according to the habitat.
