Abstract

Hermaphrditism as an abnormal phenomenon has been recorded among many Indian fishes (Chacko and Krishnamoorthy, 1949 ; Nayak, 1959 ; Prabhu and Antony Raja, 1959 ; Raju, 1960 ; Rao, 1962 ; Thomas and Raju, 1962 and Antony Raja, 1963). Certain other abnormalities such as parasitized ovary have also been described (Raju, op. cit., and Annigeri, 1961). In the course of studying the maturity and spawning of the oil sardine from the landings at Cannanore, five instances of deviation from the normal gonadial set-up have been met with, and since these appear to be the first record of the kind in the oil sardine they have been described in the present note.
