The coastal domain of the southern Canary current system encompassing southern Mauritania, Senegal, and Gambia has received little attention for at least two decades, especially in terms of the dynamics [Arístegui et al., ].This is despite the high levels of primary production observed there; its role as nursery ground for small pelagic fish and general socioeconomic importance [Cury and. This synthesis was undertaken to characterize the occurrence and abundance of fish eggs and larvae in the northeastern Gulf of Mexico (NEGOM) and to assess the region's relative importance in the early life history of fishes as compared to the entire U.S. Gulf of Mexico. Data for 66 selected taxa from 1, bongo and neuston net samples at 72 localities [comprising the UGSG NEGOM.   They form the basis of the Arctic food web -- and are extremely tough: even when the water becomes more acidic and the available light or temperatures change, various phytoplankton assemblages in. The study is the first comprehensive account of the floral biodiversity occurring along the entire Karnataka coast. Occurrence of red seaweed Gracilariopsis lemaneiformis in certain estuarine areas indicates the possibility of its farming in the estuary. Keywords: Coastal and marine floral diversity, phytoplankton, standing crop, seaweeds.

Ichthyoplankton of the Andaman and NIcobar seas were studied for their spatial, seasonal and day and night variations from zooplankton samples collected during to High density of fish larvae was encountered in the shelf waters.   Coastal phytoplankton boasts an incredible diversity of life forms. It is not rare to find 40 or 50 different species in just a few drops of water. In this "Photo Guide for Northern European Seas" we describe the major phytoplankton groups, diatoms and dinoflagellates with additional information on ciliates and smaller s: The Petite Côte in the Senegalese coastal shelf is a nursery area for fish and is the main area in which juveniles of numerous species, particularly small pelagic species, concentrate (Diankha et al., ; Thiaw et al., ). This area is also known to be rich in zooplankton and micronekton. These results were similar to the present study. Omura et al.7 described the dinoflagellate were more than diatom from Western Pacific region but more diatom in present study. Yin Yin Htay8 described that a total of species of marine phytoplankton consisted of species of diatoms and 19 species of dinoflagellates from Myeik coastal waters.

Far beyond protection of flagship species such as marine turtles and large marine mammals, the goal is now to conserve and even increase the services .

The main objectives are the following: (a) to identify and quantify the abundance of the ichthyoplank-ton in the estuary and adjacent coastal area; (b) to study. Key words: ichthyoplankton, East China sea, Kuroshio Front, China Coastal Front.

ESTUARINE WATERS. In comparison to coastal waters, published information on the composition and abundance of phytoplankton in Irish estuarine waters is rather sparse and is restricted to a small number of water bodies including Carlingford Lough, the Shannon estuary, the Deel estuary, Killary Harbour (specifically the Erriff estuary), Wexford.

The present study was aimed to investigate the phytoplankton dynamics and their absorption properties in the coastal waters of the southeastern Arabian Sea in different seasons during the year.

Worthy of note, the Casamance estuary, also classified as an inverse estuary, had the lowest diversity at.

Furthermore, in the present study, T. japonicus only distributed in the northern coastal GCC waters in winter. As the major spawning ground of this species located in the southern part of the East China Sea from late winter to spring [ Sassa et al.,], the individuals were probably brought southward by the GCC via the Taiwan Strait.

The ichthyoplankton fauna can be divided into two distinct groups: freshwater and marine. These two groups result initially from spawning preferences exhibited by the different species abundance of freshwater larvae was maximal at the head of the estuary and marine larvae were most abundant at the most saline station.

The river plumes of the Weser and Elbe reach as far offshore as Helgoland, so samples taken can be representative of coastal, estuarine, or stratified central North Sea water. Macrozooplankton sampling was carried out with a μm mesh Hydrobios CalCOFI net, using oblique hauls filtering approximately m 3 of water based upon flowmeter.

Background. Phytoplankton diversity in the ocean may influence the functioning of marine ecosystems through overall productivity, nutrient cycling and carbon export (Goebel et al.

).The productivity of a specific water body depends on the amount of plankton present in the same water body (Guy ).The plankton growth and distribution depend on the carrying capacity of the environment.
