Abstract: One of the most talked about subject of the present day is ecology and environment.[1] Every year there are innumerable seminars, workshops and conferences to discuss various aspects of ecology and environment. If the subject of such conferences were to create awareness of the effects of environmental pollution, they would have performed a salutary function. But there are differences in perception about their long-term consequences and methods of abatement. This has lead to formation of pressure groups who try to impose their views on their people at large without caring to view the local situations in the true perspective. But Environment essentially means the complete world of man and his surroundings. Not that it was not relevant in the bygone days but its importance has come to the focus with our increasing knowledge of science. Today our thoughts on environment are not restricted to our immediate surroundings alone. We are now concerned with the environment that stretches from the depths of ocean to a few kilometres above the earth into the stratosphere.[1] Two fundamental elements in the exploitation of our planet s natural resources for the benefit of mankind are water and energy.[1] Water is available in plenty on the earth and#61630; covering as much as two-thirds of the earth s surface and#61630; in the form of oceans, seas, lakes, rivers, ponds, etc. According to Perkins (1977),[2] the world s oceans cover some 71% of the earth s surface out of which the most productive areas cover only 3% of the earth s surface.
