Abstract: Sediment composition, organic carbon, total phosphorus and total nitrogen content of sediments in Vellar estuary were studied in relation to shrimp farming. Data collected over a 2 year period showed that the nutrient rich water (due to settling of unfed feed particle) discharged periodically from the shrimp farms, did not influence much the sediment nutrients of the estuary.
