The macrofaunal communities are arguably the most diverse group on earth and soil represents a favorable habitat for macrofauna. The present investigation was carried out on marine fish accessibility along the Nagapattinam coastal waters to identify, quantify and assess the fish resources potential for development of a small-scale industry. Stratified random sampling method was followed from each trawl and the collected fishes were identified up to species level by using the FAO identification sheet. A large collection of marine fish was made along the coastal line of Nagapattinam and totally 95 species belonging to 42 families and 59 genera of marine fishes were identified over a 12 months study period from May 2014 to April 2015. Most of the species were commonly available in all the season along Nagapattinam coastal waters. The present study revealed the occurrence of marine fish species along the Nagapattinam coastal waters, southeast coast of India..Pages: 193-197 | 1091 Views 9 DownloadsDownload Full Article:
