K. K. Bhanot

Observations on the brackishwater fish seed resources in West Bengal have indicated that the Matlah estuary is rich n fish seed during December-March. The collection made at depths during the high tide were the richest. Occurrence of some species of prawns has been observed to be greater in the collections during the full moon period. The hydrological analysis was made for the period under observation to show the relationship with the seed abundance.
