Nair, P V Ramachandran and Rajagopalan, M S and Pillai, V K and Gopinathan, C P and Chandrika, V and Vincent, D (1986) Marine pollution - its effects on living resources with special reference to aquaculture. In: Proceedings of the Symposium on Coastal Aquaculture, Part 4, MBAI, 12-18 January 1980, Cochin.
Due to large scale industrialisation and indiscriminate discharge of effluents with high BOD, toxic chemicals and particulate matter reach the aquatic environment, either directly or indirectly. Enrichment of the coastal waters through nutrients and minerals lead to immediate and long term effects on the biota and fishery resources causing severe eutrophication or mass mortality. Among a large variety of pollutants which reach the aquatic environment, the domestic sewage, agricultural pesticides, industrial wastes, oil and oil dispersants, radioactive wastes and the polluted water from the coconut retting zones causes deleterious effects in the inshore and fish fanning areas.
