The study was carried out to check the seasonal variation in zooplankton diversity & water quality of Alang shipbreaking yard, Gujarat coast, India. A total number of 18 group of zooplankton were recorded. Among these groups, Foraminifera, Tintinnids, Copepoda (Calanoida, Cyclopoida, Harpacticoida), Mysis larvae, Nauplius larvae were found common during the year. Maximum diversity was found during winter and minimum in summer. Maximum zooplankton density found in winter (39.56%) and minimum density found in Monsoon (21.97%). Salinity, Temperature, Turbidity & TSS (total suspended solid) showed more seasonal variation value compare to other water quality parameters.Pages: 300-304 | 577 Views 30 DownloadsDownload Full Article:
