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 ...
Zooplankton standing stock, community structure and diversity in the northern Arabian Sea
(Department of Ocean Development, New Delhi, India, 1996)
The effects of large scale oil spill, which occurred during the Gulf War in 1991 on zooplankton standing stock, community structure and diversity in the northern Arabian Sea were studied. Surface (1-0 m) and vertical ...
Lunar, diel and tidal variabilityin penaeid prawn larval abundance in the Mandovi estuary, Goa
(NISCAIR, New Delhi, 1992)
Prawn larvae were studied to determine suitable lunar and tidal phases and time for large scale seed collection for prawn aquaculture. Larvae and postlarvae of 8 commercially important species were observed in the surface ...
Seasonal variability in penaeid prawn larval abundance in the Mandovi and Zuari estuaries, Goa
(Indian Fisheries Association, 1993)
Seasonal variations in the occurrence and abundance of penaeid prawn larvae in the Mandovi and Zuari estuaries of Goa, India were studied. Larvae and postlarvae of commercially important species viz. Metapenaeus dobsoni ...
Zooplankton biomass and potential fishery resources of the EEZ of India
(Omega Scientific, New Delhi, India, 1996)
An assessment of zooplankton biomass, secondary production and potential fishery resources of the EEZ of India was made from the data collected during a period of 15 years from 1976 to 1991. The areas studied included the ...
Swarming of Creseis acicula Rang (Pteropoda) in the coastal waters of Goa
(Indian Association for Limnology and Oceanography, 1983)
Swarms of Creseis acicula Rang (Pteropoda) were observed in the coastal waters of Goa regularly in October, from 1976 to 1980. The highest biomass value obtained for this species was 494 ml/100 m@u3@@, forming 96% of ...
Diel variation in zooplankton in Minicoy lagoon and Kavarati atoll (Lakshadweep islands)
(NISCAIR, CSIR, 1990)
Zooplankton and fisheries
(NIO, Goa, 1991)
Zooplankton are considered as the chief index of utilization of aquatic biotope at the secondary trophic level. The intensity of zooplankton aggregation depends on their ability to counter dispersion, phytoplankton growth, ...
Distribution of Pleuromamma (Copepoda: Metridiidae) along a north-south transect in the Indian Ocean
(Oxford and IBH, New Delhi, 1992)
Distribution and abundance of calanoid copepods of the genus Pleuromamma Giesbrecht 1898 along a north-south transect in the Indian Ocean were studied. Seven species such as Pleuromamma indica, P. abdominalis, P. gracilis, ...
Diurnal variation in zooplankton in the Zuari Estuary, west coast of India
(Marine Biological Association of India, 1997)
Variations in zooplankton biomass and population density in relation to the prevailing hydrographical conditions were studied in Zuari Estuary, Goa. The physico-chemical parameters showed limited variations. Zooplankton ...
