    Abstract

    The Oil sardine Sardinella longiceps is a major fishery resource in India and catches in 2014 were an estimated 5.44 lakh tonnes (t). Of this, Kerala accounted for 1.55 lakh t forming 28% of the All India Oil sardine landings. In the domestic retail markets of Kerala when Oil sardine prices were ranging between ` 80 - 140 per kilogram, large sized sardines with average weights > 120 g each were also appearing and being sold at prices 40 - 60% higher than the locally caught sardines. Although market sources informed that these large sized Oil sardine were coming from Oman, the claim could not be traced. However, during a weekly visit to Kalamukku landing centre, Kochi for sampling fish on 23.6.2015, the unloading of packed cartons containing large sized Oil sardine was observed and these were traced to being sourced from Oman.
