Abstract

The oceans and seas provide immense amount of both living and nonliving marine wealth. But now, due to scientific, technological and industrial advancements the seas and oceans are regarded as a vast cesspool with an infinite capacity to absorb natural and man-made pollutants. Sufficient reports are available in recent years to understand that there are definite limits to man's abuse of the oceans and in particular Inany enclosed, semi-enclosed seas and coastal areas. The deleterims effects of pollutants including heavy metals on living resources are much more evident in the estuarine and coastal areas. These ecosystems particularly the estuaries serve as the important feeding and nursery ground and also llpassage zone1' for a large number of commercially exploitable and cultivable aquatic organisms
