Abstract

An incursion of sea weeds like brown algae and reef fishes like Sargassum fishes was observed in the Cochin backwaters on 6-12-1991. It appears that the habitat disturbance caused by the human interference along the southern part of the west coast brought the reef fishes along with the marine algae into the backwaters being assisted by the strong northerly current prevailing during the season.
