Zooplankton characteristics of the coastal ecosystem off Bombay, India
(Intergovernmental Oceanographic Commission, 1998)
The nearshore waters of Bombay sustain a rich and diverse zooplankton fauna. Continuous observations for a period of 15 months indicated a variation from 0.4 to 19.9 mg C.m sup(3) (av. 4.3 mg C.m sup(-3)) in zooplankton ...
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 ...
Bio-accumulation of copper, zinc, iron and manganese in oyster Saccostrea cucullata, Snail Cerithium rubus and Clam Tellina angulata from the Bombay coast
(Coastal Research Foundation, 1992)
Metal content was determined in three groups of molluscs - an oyster Saccostrea cucullata, snail Cerithium rubus and clam Tellina angulata from three sites along the Bombay Coast. Seasonal difference in copper content was ...
Fishery potential of the Thana - Bassein creek system
(Indian Fisheries Association, 1990)
Toxicity of some metals on the fish Therapon Jarbua (Forsskal, 1775)
Hg, V and Pb were more toxic to Therapon jarbua than the other metals studied. Recorded 86 h LC sub(50) for Hg, V, Pb, As, Cu, Zn, Ni and Co was respectively at 0.06, 0.62, 1.23, 3.38, 4.5, 11.0, 19.4 and 52.5 mg.l/1. The ...

Phytoplankton characteristics in a polluted Bombay Harbour-Thana-Bassein creek estuarine complex
(NISCAIR, CSIR, 1998)
Annual variations in phytoplankton characteristics were studied from Bombay Harbour-Thana creek-Bassein creek (BHTCBC) estuarine confluence to assess the levels of pigment concentration, productivity and, qualitative and ...
Zooplankton biomass along the west coast of India and its effect on the fishery
(Indian Fisheries Association, 1980)
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 ...
