Abstract

The Research Vessel Varuna commenced working in the Indian Seas from January 1962 and by the end of December 1963 had completed 44 cruises in the Arabian Sea, Central Indian Ocean north of the Equator, and the Bay of Bengal. Routine plankton collections made at the various stations, especially in the oceanic waters off the west coast of India showed the fairly widespread occurrence of the larval stages of some species of bathypelagic fishes, one of which, Vinciguerria nimbaria (Jordan and Williams) is dealt with in this account.
