  • Title
    Additional record of scleractinian corals on Porbandar coast, Gujarat, India
    Type
    Journal Article
    Description
    Out of four major coral reefs of India, Gujarat harbours one in the Gulf of Kachchh (GoK). The total scleractinian (hard coral) diversity in the GoK is 59, well documented by various scientists. However, the other coastal area of Gujarat especially the Saurashtra coast, facing the Arabian Sea has been poorly documented with reference to scleractinian diversity. The paper describes the diversity of scleractinian corals on the Porbandar coast facing the Arabian Sea. An occurrence of a total of eight species of scleractinian corals have been reported for the first time from the area Kuchdi in Porbandar District of Gujarat state in Western India.
