Abstract

This paper highlights habitat of juvenile settlement of Holothuria pardalis at Sikka coast. We studied habitat, population structure and length frequency of encountered juveniles. Field data collected using belt transect method, near Gujarat State Fertizer Company’s Jetty (GSFC Jetty), at Sikka, Gujarat, India. Juveniles observed after settling underneath coral skeleton or rock at reef flat covered by algal complex. We consider these results in relation to other similar observations that habitat of juvenile settlement is different than that of the adults.
