Total mercury in water, sediments, and animals along the Indian Coast
Total mercury (Hg) in water, sediments and animals along the coast of India is estimated. Water samples were collected on board of R.V. Gaveshani.The zooplankton samples were collected by Indian Ocean Standard Net and Heron ...
Organochlorine residues in zooplankton off the Saurashtra coast, India
Zooplankton samples were collected by neuston net (250 mu m) at the sea surface for about 40 min
Concentration and toxicity of some metals in zooplankton from nearshore waters of Bombay
Zooplankton samples collected from 4 stations located in the nearshore waters of Bombay were analysed for Cu, Co, Mn, Ni and Cd. Concentrations of Co, Mn and Ni were more in copepods and gelatinous organisms than in mysids ...
Organic carbon content of zooplankton from the nearshore waters of Bombay
Organic carbon content of zooplankton in the Versova Creek and Thana Creek (polluted areas), off Versova and off Mahim, Bombay, India (relatively unpolluted areas) varied respectively from 21.4-30, 13.2-38.4, 21.6-30 and ...
Comparative account on zooplankton in polluted and unpolluted estuaries of Gujarat
(Indian Association for Limnology and Oceanography, 1983)
An assessment of the zooplankton biomass and composition in Kolak Par, Damanganga and Auranga estuaries was made. Among these four rivers pollution is severe in the first two, moderate in Damanganga and good water quality ...
Mercury, Cadmium and lead in different Tissues of Fishes and in Zooplankton from the Andaman Sea
Several fishes, representing different trophic levels, and some zooplankton samples were analysed for Hg, Cd and Pb There is a wide variation in the concentrations of these elements Hg is quite low in practically all the ...
Toxicity of some heavy metals to Copepods Acartia Spinicauda and Tortanus Forcipatus
Copper was most toxic to the species tested followed by cadmium and zinc The estuarine species Acartia spinicauda was more sensitive to the toxicants that the marine species Tortanus forcipatus The 48 hr LC50 values are presented.
Mercury in Thana Creek, Bombay Harbour
Mercury content of the water column estimated along Thana Creek/Bombay Harbour gave a standing stock of about 77 kg in excess of the expected background. Mercury concentration in sediment from 23 locations which varied ...
Some Heavy Metals in Fishes from the Andaman Sea
Muscles, liver, gills and heart of several fishes and some zooplankton(whole sample) collected from the Andaman Sea were analysed for Cu, Mn, Zn, Fe, Ni and Co. The concentrations of practically all the metals were highest ...
Zooplankton Variability in Polluted and Unpolluted Waters off Bombay
(Indian Association for Limnology and Oceanography, 1981)
Zooplankton abundance in the waters around Bombay was studied at Versova, Bombay Harbour (less polluted), Mahim and Thana (highly polluted) from October 1977 to December 1978. A rich zooplankton population was observed ...
