Nair, A K Kesavan and Balakrishnan, V (1975) Bombay duck (Harpodon nehereus) fishery During 1950-72. Indian Journal of Fisheries, 22 (1&2). pp. 198-204.



The Bombayduck catch forms about 7% of the total, all' India landings. 97% of the catches of this fish comes from tbs coast of Maharashtra and Gujarat. Difference is observed in the pattern of seasonal variations along the Maharashtra and Gujarat coasts though the peak and trough periods for the two states coincide. The annual landings varied between 7 and 128 thousand tonnes during the 1950- ,72 period. After 1959 the bulk of the fishery appears to have shifted from Maharashtra to the Gujarat coast. During the 1960-72 period, it was the Gujarat catch that determined the trends in the landings of this fish for the country as a whole.
