Quantitative distribution of meiofauna in the depth range 20 to 1000 m of the Gulf of Martaban, Andaman Sea was studied from 46 stations during a synaptic survey carried out in April-May 2002 of ORV Sagar Kanya Cruise ...
Overexploitation of fishry resources, with particular reference to Goa
(TERI Press, India, 2006)
Marine living resources are not infinite. Overexploitation is a pervasive problem in fishery the world over. Landings of major fisheries resources in the Indian Ocean region have declined significantly, and the Goan coast ...
Effects of petroleum hydrocarbons on the growth of a microalga, Isochrysis sp. (Chrysophyta)
(NISCAIR, CSIR, 1997)
Effects of water soluble fraction of Bombay High crude oil and heavy duty marine diesel on the growth of a microalga were examined and compared. Most concentrations of the oil depressed the growth rate in Isochrysis sp. ...
