Benthos of the EEZ of India
(Omega Scientific Publ., New Delhi, 1996)
Community structure of meiobenthos from a tropical estuary
(NISCAIR, CSIR, 1998)
Meiofaunal samples were collected from 3 stations, located in the salinity gradient of Zuari Estuary of Goa. Spatially the abundance of meiofauna decreased from lower to upper reaches and followed the trend of salinity ...
Cultivation of green mussel, Perna viridis L., on a floating raft in an estuary along the west coast of India
Total production of green mussels, Perna viridis, grown on a raft (16 m sup(2)) for 1 year was 2144.64 kg and biomass (meat weight) was 1040.00 kg. Annual production (P) and biomass (B) estimated were 33.51 and 16.25 kg m ...
Uptake of copper by the mussel Mytilus viridis L.
Meiofauna of the Andaman Sea
Total meiofauna of the Andaman Sea, in the depth range 30-2150m was between 68 and 438/10cm2 (X-bar = 247.8). The biomass was within the range 3.57 and 32.8mg/10cm 2 (X-bar = 14.46). faunal components were maximum in sandy ...
Meiobenthos of Saphala salt marsh, west coast of India
Benthic fauna of the salt marsh comprised 10 taxonomic groups, dominated by nematodes (63.9%), harpacticoids (18.5%), turbellaria (5.6%), crustacean nauplii (5.4%) and polychaetes (4.1%). The population density varied from ...
Effect of high organic enrichment of benthic polychaete population in an estuary
The benthic polychaete fauna of an estuarine region receiving domestic sewage and wastes from a nearby fish landing jetty was compared to that of a site having normal organic enrichment. The population density, biomass and ...
Abyssal benthos of the Central Indian Ocean
Quantitative studies of the abyssal benthos (3600 to 5300 m) of the central Indian Ocean show a rich fauna and high standing crops. Density of 3 meiofaunal and 12 macrofaunal taxa are large (2175 to 15233; chi = 6441 m-2). ...
Elemental (C, H, N) composition of zooplankton from north Arabian Sea
(NISCAIR, CSIR, 1995)
Zooplankton samples collected from north Arabian Sea during March 1992 were analysed for elemental (C,H,N) composition. Estimated carbon, hydrogen and nitrogen concentrations displayed variations among different groups but ...
