ABSTRACT :

The coastline occupies about 312,000 km (19300000 miles) long the world wide. The coastal peninsular India is bounded by water on 3 sides: The Arabian Sea in the west, the Bay of Bengal in the East, and Indian Ocean in the south The Indian coastline runs over a distance of 7500 km distributed along nine coastal states, two groups of Islands and four union territories. India is the 7th largest marine fishing nation in the world. Around the world nearly 1 billion people live along the coastline. 1/5 of the population live along the Indian coastline. India has a variety of natural coastal ecosystems. The east coast is low-lying with lagoons, marshes, beaches and deltas rich in mangrove forests. The Coastal environment is mainly effected by the two processes one is natural activities and another one is anthropogenic activities. Due to these activities the changes in the physical chemical and biological activities of water and sediments characteristics and its lead to coastal pollution. The present study is to understand the impact of anthropogenic pollution on the test morphology of foraminifera from some parts of Andhra Coast, Bay of Bengal.
