|Title:||Phytoplankton in relation to pollution in Visakhapatnam harbour, east coast of India|
|Authors:||Raman, A V|

|Abstract:||Sporadic outbursts of phytoplankton, notably diatoms and phytoflagellates, are observed from Visakhapatnam harbour waters subjected to pollution. The harbour waters are characterised by high proportions of inorganic nutrients attributable to sewage and industrial waste discharges. High phytoplankton standing crop and chlorophyll concentrations accompanied by low species diversity at the harbour locations indicate severe eutrophication of waters in this area as against near normal conditions in the open sea.|
