pigments and humic acids in tropical coastal board ecosystems. Pigmentos fotosint&icos y ácidos húmicos en ecosistemas costeros tropicales. Ciencias Marinas, 15(z): ABSTRACT Spatial variations in the dissolved and particulate humic acids and photosynthetic pigment concentrations along the coastal waters of the Vellar-Coleroonestuarine complex (east coast of India) were estimated, as an index to assess the fertility of water bodies in this area. Generally in all the stations, particulate humic
