Abstract

The environmental and man-made changes that affects the coral growth and associated animals and fishery in Palk Bay and Gulf of Mannar along the Indian coast are discussed. Quarrying of corals for industrial use has turned out to be a serious threat to the reefs. Removal of corals in several places has caused settlement of sand and growth of sea-grass and algae at former sites of well developed reefs.
