Pleuromamma indica was the only species among the 7 species of the genus, recorded in the area, to be present in 2 restricted areas, one near the mouth of the Gulf of Oman in the Arabian Sea and the other in the Bay of ...
Macrobenthic assemblage in the soft sediment of Marmugao Harbour, Goa (central west coast of India)
Survey of the macroinvertebrate fauna in soft sediment of 18 stations in the Marmugao Harbour revealed spatial heterogeneity based on environmental parameters and benthic assemblage. Based on the presence/absence of the ...
The ecology of hydromedusae from the Cochin area
Further studies in using mangrove foliage as a prawn feed
(Indian Association for Limnology and Oceanography, 1983)
Changes in biochemical composition and energy content of foliage of eight mangrove species at various phases of life and during decay were studied. Decomposition resulted in loss of organic contents, carbon and C:N ratio ...
Standing stock and biochemical composition of zooplankton in the northeastern Arabian Sea
During November-December 1985 - a period of this study showed significant difference in biomass (dry weight) among the coastal and oceanic waters. Ostracods were the predominant component (47 per cent) in the coastal zone ...
Ecology of intertidal benthic algae of Northern Karnataka coast
The intertidal benthic marine algal flora has been studied for distribution, phenology, biomass and zonation along with the environmental conditions. About 65 species belonging to 42 genera of Chlorophyta, Phaeophyta have ...
Zooplankton composition of the Kalpeni and Agatti atolls, Lakshadweep archiplago
Composition of zooplankton in the lagoons was quite different from that of the sea and to a large extent, was independent of oceanic influence While copepods were dominant in the sea, meroplankton, particularly brachyuran ...
Distribution and seasonal abundance of carangid larvae in the Arabian sea and Bay of Bengal
(Mangalore: Asian Fisheries Society, Indian Branch, 1989)
Carangid larvae were recorded from 8.8% of the International Indian Ocean Expedition (IIOE) stations in the Arabian Sea and 13.2% in the Bay of Bengal. Their total contribution was 1.1% of the total larvae collected. The ...
Variation in meroplankton along 78 degrees E Meridian
(Marine Biological Association of India, 1989)
Variations along the meridian 78 degrees E between 8 degrees N and 25 degrees S, based on 43 zooplankton samples were studied. Fish larvae exhibited fluctuations in abundance (26 to 57 specimens/IOSN haul) in the three ...
