Analysis of reproductive organs, maturity condition, fecundity and sex ratio was done during March - June 1998. Oocyte diameter was measured and histological characteristics of ovary were studied, This species remains in the estuarine environment and undergo migration to nearby coastal areas for the purpose o f breeding. Final stage of maturity is attained in the sea. The spawning occurs on the sea and the young ones migrate to estuarine area. The process of maturation is a continuous process and spawning take place within a prolonged period. The observed maturity stages of females were (i) immature (ii) inactive / resting (iii) Developing (active) (iv) mature (v) ripe and running (vi) spent and of males were (I) immature (ii) maturing and (iii) spent.
