|Title:||Organic Carbon Content of Tropical Zooplankton|
|Authors:||Nair, Vijayalakshmi R|
|Abstract:||In the Zuari and Mandovi estuaries variations in organic carbon of zooplankton are 26.4-38.8 and 24-39.9% of dry weight respectively. Maximum carbon content of estuarine zooplankton is observed in November. Organic carbon in nearshore and oceanic zooplankton is 34.5 and 41% of dry weight respectively. Variation in the carbon content of zooplankton is attributed to its composition. Diversity of zooplankton increases from estuarine to oceanic realm with a concomitant rise in the value of organic carbon. The average dry weight for 1 ml of nearshore and oceanic zooplankton is 61.9 and 81.7 mg respectively.|
