Raghu Prasad, R and Jayaraman, R (1954) Preliminary studies on certain changes in the plankton and hydrological conditions associated with the swarming of Noctiluca. Proceedings of the Indian Academy of Sciences, 40 (2 B). pp. 49-57.
An effect of swarming of Noctiluca on the 'choodai ' fishery was reported by one of us (Prasad, 1953) and there it was mentioned that the appearance of these swarms was accompanied by certain changes in the chemical and biological environment. There are several instances of antagonistic or lethal reactions on zooplankton cansed by the presence of-swarms of dinoflagellates and some of the well known examples of this phenomenon have been givell by Sproston (1949).
