Raghu Prasad, R (1953) Swarming of Noctiluca in the Palk Bay and its effect on the 'choodai' fishery, with a note on the possible use of Noctiluca as an indicator species. Proceedings of the Indian Academy of Sciences, 38 (1 B). pp. 40-47.
An unusual occurrence of Noctiluca miliaris Suriray in great numbers in the inshore waters of the Palk Bay off Mandapam was noticed in April 1952. Their first appearance was on the 14th when in one c.c. of the standardized sample of plankton2 there were only 25 Noctiluca. Soon they showed signs of rapid increase and by April 18 their number in one c.c. reached the order of 3,300.
