Some observations on the biology of Balanus amphitrite D. fouling the cultured green mussel in Goa waters
(Indian Association for Limnology and Oceanography, 1977)
Macrobenthic communities of the coastal waters of Dabhol, west coast of India
(NISCAIR, CSIR, 2002)
Macrobenthic community of a shallow subtidal (5-20 m) muddy deposit off Dabhol was investigated. Sediment comprised mainly of silt and clay with less of sand. Dominance of clayey-silt fraction reflects on active flocculation ...
Seasonality and vertical distribution of epiphytic diatoms on the pneumatophore surface of mangrove Avicennia officinalis L.
(Springer Berlin Heidelberg, 2018)
Mangrove pneumatophores (respiratory roots) form a unique habitat about which very little ecological information is available. In this study, epiphytic diatoms on the pneumatophore surface of Avicennia officinalis (L.) ...
Monitoring effects of simulated disturbance at INDEX site: Current status and future activities
(International Society of Offshore and Polar Engineers, 2003)
During the Indian Deep-Sea Environment Experiment (INDEX), greater than 6000 cu.m of sediment was resuspended 5 m above seafloor. Data collected from deep-towed photography, sediment traps, sediment coring and CTD operations ...
Benthic macroinvertebrate community structure and distribution in the Ayeyarwady continental shelf, Andaman Sea
(NISCAIR (CSIR), 2012)
Quantitative assessment of macrofaunal community of Ayeyarwady continental shelf, Andaman Sea was studied during April-May 2002. About 27 major taxa were identified. Abundance of fauna was in the order of polychaetes ...
Marine bioinvasion: Concern for ecology and shipping
(Indian Academy of Sciences, 2002)
Marine bioinvasion - introduction of marine organisms alien to local ecosystem through ship hulls and ballast water - has serious consequences to native biota, fishery and general coastal ecosystem. Over 80% of the world ...
Biochemical composition of the alligator pipefish, Syngnathoides biaculeatus (Bloch, 1785)
(Science Press, 2017)
Considering the economic importance in traditional Chinese medicine (TCM) and lack of baseline information, we evaluated the proximate composition, fatty acid and amino acid profiles, trace element content and C:N ratio ...
Investigating the impacts of treated effluent discharge on coastal water health (Visakhapatnam, SW coast of Bay of Bengal, India)
The present study investigated the impacts of treated effluent discharge on physicochemical and biological properties of coastal waters from three pharmaceuticals situated along the coast of Visakhapatnam (SW Bay of Bengal). ...
Epi-benthic megafaunal zonation across an oxygen minimum zone at the Indian continental margin
The Arabian Sea oxygen minimum zone (OMZ) impinges upon the Indian continental margin at bathyal depths (150–1500 m) producing changes in ambient oxygen availability and sediment geochemistry across the seafloor. The ...
A new distributional record of alligator pipefish, Syngnathoides biaculeatus (Bloch, 1785) along Goa, central west coast of India
Present study is based on a single male specimen of alligator pipefish, Syngnathoides biaculeatus (Bloch, 1785) collected from the bay-estuarine system of, Goa (central west coast of India) which is the new distributional ...
