Figure S1. Water column dissolved oxygen (ml l−1) profiles over the north East Indian shelf (16–200N) measured onboard FORV Sagara Sampada.

Figure S2. Hierarchical clustering powered with SIMPROF analysis showing macrobenthic infaunal assemblages off the north East Indian margin, Bay of Bengal (n = 110).

Figure S3. Relationships of total macrofaunal diversity measures - E(S100), H’, d, dominance and J’ – to bottom water oxygen concentration and sediment organic matter along with coefficients of determination for 10 to 1004 m (n = 80) off 6 transects, north East Indian margin.

Figure S4. Relationships of macrofaunal species richness, diversity, dominance and evenness residuals to bottom water oxygen residuals and organic matter residuals, after the effect of depth was removed as a linear fit.

Figure S5. Relationships of polychaete diversity measures - E(s100), H’, d, dominance and J’ – to bottom water oxygen concentration and sediment organic matter along with coefficients of determination for 10 to 1004 m (n = 80) off 6 transects, north East Indian margin.

Figure S6. Relationships of polychaete species richness, diversity, dominance and evenness residuals to bottom water oxygen residuals and organic matter residuals, after the effect of depth was removed as a linear fit. Significant regression lines and coefficients of determination (P) for data (n = 80) off six transects, north East Indian slope are shown.
