Growth parameters in the cultured green mussel Perna viridis L. from the Zuari Estuary, Goa
(NISCAIR, New Delhi, 1993)
Growth parameters for both length and weight were estimated in the raft-grown population of Perna viridis. The asymptotic length (L approaches infinity) and weight (W ) were computed to be 85 mm and 34.37 g respectively. ...
Meiofaunal stratification in relation to microbial food in a tropical mangrove mud flat
(International Society of Tropical Ecology, Varanasi, India, 1993)
The vertical gradients of meiofauna mainly in relation to biochemical changes and microbial abundance in the upper 20 cm of deposit of a mangrove mud flat were studied. Strong vertical gradients in the redox potential (Eh), ...
Population characteristics of the mole crab, Hippa adactyla Fabricius, in the intertidal sediment at Kavaratti Atoll, Lakshadweep Islands
(Rosenstiel School of Marine Sicence, 1998)
Some population characteristics of a little known mole crab Hippa adactyla from the sandy intertidal habitat of Kavaratti atoll, Lakshadweep islands, were studied for understanding the resource potentials besides some ...
Particulate carbohydrate and proteins in the Bay of Bengal
(Academic Press, 1996)
Particulate carbohydrates (PCHO) and proteins (PP) of the offshore waters (depth greater than 200 m) were measured within the upper 150 m water column along the six transects covering 36 stations perpendicular to the coast ...
Particulate organic constituents of surface waters of east coast of India
(NISCAIR, New Delhi, 1993)
Particulate matter collected from surface seawater (approx 1 m) samples from 11 coastal (depth less than 200 m) and 40 oceanic (depth > 200 m ) stations was studied for particulate organic carbon (POC), particulate ...
Effect of lunar periodicity on the abundance of crabs from the Goa Coast
Lunar periodicity showed a significant influence on the occurrence of edible crabs (@iPortunus pelagicus, Charybdis cruciata and Portunus sanguinolentus@@). High density of these crabs was recorded in the trawl catches ...
Benthic faunal composition along Princess Astrid Coast, East Antarctica
(Department of Ocean Development, New Delhi, 1995)
An unusual giant pycnogonid (Pycnogonida-Colossendeidae) Decolopoda qasimi sp. nov. from Antarctic waters
(Current Science Association, Bangalore, India, 1993)
Five specimens of benthic pycnogonids collected from the Southern Ocean are described. Of these, two are identified as Nymphon australis (Hodgson) and two as Ecleipsotherma spinosa (Hodgson). One specimen under the class ...
Biochemical composition and caloric potential of zooplankton from Bay of Bengal
(NISCAIR, New Delhi, 1992)
Proximate composition and variations in protein, lipid, carbohydrate, ash and organic carbon in zooplankton from 42 stations in the Bay of Bengal are reported. Average percentages of moisture, protein, lipid, carbohydrate, ...
