Penaeid prawn population and fry resource in a mangrove swamp of Goa, India
Penaeid prawns abundantly occur in the mangrove swamp during the premonsoon season. They are constituted by the commercial species, Penaeus merguiensis, Metapenaeus dobsoni and M. monoceros. Recruitment of the swamp takes ...
Plankton composition in two estuaries of the Konkan coast during premonsoon season
(Indian Association for Limnology and Oceanography, 1981)
Plankton composition of the Shastri and the Kajvi estuaries of the Konkan Coast were studied during the premonsoon season. Phytoplankton constituents were more abundant at the mid and upper reaches in the former whereas ...
Observations on feeding behaviour and survival rates in the estuarine calanoid copepods Acartia spinicauda and Heliodiaptomus cinctus (Crustacea: Copepoda: Calanoida)
(Council of Scientific and Industrial Research, New Delhi, 1999)
Experiments were conducted on the calanoid copepods, Acartia spinicauda (Acartiidae) and Heliodiaptomus cinctus (Diaptomidae) in order to determine food preference and survival rates respectively. Adults of A. spinicauda ...

Thermocline and zooplankton distribution
Toxicity of some heavy metals to copepods Acartia spinicauda and Tortanus forcipatus
Copper was most toxic to the species tested followed by cadmium and zinc The estuarine species Acartia spinicauda was more sensitive to the toxicants that the marine species Tortanus forcipatus The 48 hr LC50 values are presented.
Zooplankton biomass and composition in the western Bay of Bengal during late sw monsoon
Copepoda formed the predominant group except in the southern region where a swarm of pelagic tunicates reduced their contribution to only 19% of the total zooplankton count. Decapod larvae occurred in fairly large numbers ...
Biochemical composition of muscle tissue of penaeid prawns
(Indian Association for Limnology and Oceanography, 1984)
Biochemical composition of muscle tissue of females belonging to four species of penaeid prawns, viz. Metapenaeus affinis, M. dobsoni, Penaeus merguiensis and Parapenaeopsis stylifera, inhabiting the coastal waters of Goa, ...
Microdistribution of zooplankton in the neustonic realm of the eastern Arabian Sea during southwest monsoon
(Oxford and IBH, New Delhi, 1992)
During the southwest monsoon season of 1987, the zooplankton distributions in the neustonic realm (upper 50 cm) of the eastern Arabian Sea were studied and compared with those in the water column. The upper microlayer ...
