Abstract:
Sikka coast (22˚25ꞌ 55.85ꞌꞌ N and 69˚50ꞌ 29.69ꞌꞌ E) is situated in the center of southern coast of Gulf of Kachchh and is one of the most important places of interest for algal growth in India. The present study highlights the diversity of Phaeophyceae along two locations of Sikka coast viz., GSFC jetty and Vador site. In present study (from October-2020 to March-2021), a total of 18 and 16 species of Phaeophyceae were recorded from GSFC Jetty and Vador site respectively. Highest number of phaeophyceae was recorded during March while least was observed in October and December. Padina gymnospora, Dictyota dichotoma, Ectocarpus sp. and Sargassum sp. were the most dominant species found during investigation. Temperature is an important factor that was observed to play an important role in controlling seaweed diversity in the present study because with increased temperature, diversity of Phaeophyceae was also increased. Among the two sites, GSFC Jetty have more species diversity as compared to the Vador site.
