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 ...
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 ...
Neuston composition in central Arabian Sea
Composition of neuston in the Arabian Sea (lat. 16-19 degrees N., long. 60-72 degrees E) was studied. The standing stock ranged between 1.5 and 49.3 ml (100 m2)-1. Copepoda was generally the dominant group, forming on ...
Distribution of penaeid prawn larvae in the coastal waters of Goa
Larval and postlarval distribution of 4 commercially important penaeid prawns was studied in the coastal waters of Goa extending up to 40 m depth zone during Jan. - Dec. 1981. Larval stages of Metapenaeus dobsoni and ...
Zooplankton variability in the Zuari estuary, Goa
(Indian Association for Limnology and Oceanography, 1983)
Short term variability in the secondary production and composition of zooplankton were studied during February to March 1979 by collecting zooplankton every alternate day from a station located near the mouth of Zuari. ...
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 ...
Thermocline and Zooplankton Distribution
Chaetognatha of the Andaman Sea
Chaetognatha of the Andaman Sea were studied during 51 and 52 cruises of R.V Gaveshani (Jan to Feb 1979) The area between southeast of Andaman island and north of Nicobar island had relatively higher density Total population ...
Major crustacean groups and zooplankton diversity around Andaman-Nicobar islands
Zooplankton Composition and Diversity in Western Bay of Bengal
(Cambridge University Press, 1981)
The biomass of zooplankton ranged from 1-90 ml/100 m3 in the western Bay of Bengal from off Sri Lanka to south of Calcutta in June 1978. The coastal belt between Madras and Visakhapatnam where upwelling is known to occur ...
