|Title:||Bioproduction dynamics of a mangal bordered brackishwater in Tuticorin coast|
|Abstract:||A survey in Tuticorin mangal region near thermal power plant has been carried out for a period of one year for assessing its productivity. The mean gross and net photosynthesis of this system were 299.7 and 134.333 mgC.m-3.h-1, respectively. The ratio of net photosynthesis to gross photosynthesis varied between 0.17 and 0.77. Chlorophyll-a showed a bimodal distribution and the highest value recorded was to the tune of 42.59 mg.l-1. Primary production and chl-a values recorded in this bitope indicated its biological fertility.|
