    Abstract

    Researchers at the Central Marine Fisheries Research Institute (CMFRI) have identified a species of ribbonfish, which grows only up to 35 cm, as the ones being mistaken for fish juveniles by conservation activists and fishermen for the commercially important trichiurus lepturus, commonly called the largehead hairtail, which can grow up to a size of 235 cm. The large volume of the catch of the smaller ribbon fish trichiurus auriga, called pearly hairtail, was reported off the coast of Thiruvananthapuram at a depth of 285 metres, the CMFRI report said. Around 10 tonnes of the smaller ribbon fish variety was caught in an expedition by ‗Sagar Sampada‘ of the CMFRI in early December 2014.
