BIODIVERSITY OF ZOOPLANKTON COMMUNITY IN COASTAL AREA OF SON TRA PENINSULA, DA NANG

Trinh Si-Hai Truong, Vinh Tam Nguyen

Abstract


Zooplankton samples were collected at 16 stations in the coastal waters of Son Tra peninsula, Da Nang city in dry season (7/2016). At each station, zooplankton samples were collected by using Juday net (mouth diameter: 37 cm, mesh-zise: 200 µm) from 1 m above bottom to surface. 112 species belonging to 11 zooplankton groups were identified. Copepod was a dominant group with 67 species, followed by Tunicate (13) and Gastropod (7). The Northeast and Northwest areas of Son Tra peninsula have a higher biodiversity than the South and Southeast based on number of species, species richness value. An average density of zooplankton was 7.768 ins.m-3 and was decided by copepod density (3.759 inds.m-3 on average). Station 4 had the highest number of individual and station 18 had the lowest zooplankton density. Oikopleura fusiformis was dominant in most of stations in the north area (22.16%) and in the northwest (15.97%), while copepod species Paracalanus crassirostris was dominant in the northwest (16.51%) and in the south (24.57%) of Son Tra based on SIMPER analysis (90%).
