Ecology of euphausiacea along the southwest coast of India

Mathew, K J (1985) Ecology of euphausiacea along the southwest coast of India. Journal of the Marine Biological Association of India, 27 (1&2). pp. 138-157.



The ecology of Euphausiacea (Crustacea) of the continental shelf waters along the southwest coast of India has been investigated by a study of the latitudinal and inshore-offshore movements of six species in relation to the environmental parameters. The study showed a high degree of correlation between the occurrence and abundance of euphausiids and the environment. While Pseudeuphausia latifrons, Euphausia diomedeae, Nematoscelis gracilis and Stylocheiron armatum reacted negatively to the upwelled waters, E. sibogae seemed to favour these waters. At the same time S. affine showed a neutral reaction by presenting itself in the shelf waters throughout the year.
