Effect of Bombay High crude oil and its fractions on growth and primary productivity of the Phytoplankton

An oil spill was simulated in microcosms in the laboratory using phytoplankton assemblage collected from Versova, Mumbai. Bombay High Crude oil, water-soluble fraction and water-dispersed fraction were added to respective tanks. Their effect was investigated on various parameters like primary productivity, growth and biomass of the phytoplankton at different time intervals.
