Description 
Summary

In this project the aim was to find the relation between lower trophic organisms and nutrient supply. The project is concluded that study area is a typical sub-tropical temperate water type and some trophic relations are documented along with phytoplankton and zooplanktonic interactions. Monthly changes in hydrographic conditions are also documented.
