Harmful Phytoplanktons in the Coast of Arthunkal in Kerala, Southwest Coast of India

Lekshmi S., Miranda M.T.P.


Abstract: The presence of Harmful Algal cells in the coastal waters of Arthunkal was investigated for one years (January December2015). A plankton net was used for collection and the collected samples were fixed in 4 % neutral formaldehyde and placed in polythene vials for later sorting and identification. The samples were examined under the microscope and cells were identified. Harmful algal blooms impact human health, marine environments, and also can have a large economic impact. These HABs are responsible for the death of many species of marine mammals and seabirds. Some harmful algal species disrupt the marine environment. Thus, a rapid and effective method to monitor and detect the presence of HABs and their toxins is of high importance.
