Abstract

Characteristics of shelf waters along the central east coast towards the end of summer monsoon season has been studied. Occurrence/ abundance of Bulls eye in the shallower areas of the shelf is found related to the movement of upwelled water into the shallower areas of the shelf towards the end of summer monsoon season. Bulls eye was found avoiding the weas of low salinity caused by river runoff in the area between 15' and 17 N Latitude.
