Abstract

During the 22nd cruise of FORV Sagar Sampada a survey of the bottom fauna, especially of fishes, was made along the northwest coast of India, from 10 stations (Sagar Sampada St. Nos. 777-786) at depths varying between 65 and 130 m. Of these 10 stations, gorgonids were present at two stations (St. Nos. 783, Lat. 19"OWN and Long.71'00'E; 784, Lat. 19"OU'N and Long. RWE) in appreciably good numbers.
