Nagabhushanam, A K (1968) On an unusually dense phytoplankton bloom around Minicoy Island (Arabian Sea), and its effect on the local tuna fisheries. Current Science, 36 (22). pp. 611-612.
The fishing season in this area for the tunas chiefly Katsuwonis pelamis (L.) by surface 'chumming' and angling during the months of February, March and April 1965, was fairly good. However, early in May 1965 the tuna catches suddenly fell off to nil.
