Abstract

Larvae of the Indian mackerel, Rastrelliger kanagurta (Cuvier) have been identified by the author from the plankton of the south west coast of India and the Laccadive Sea collected during the cruises of R. V. VARUNA. Prolarval and postiarval sta-ges from the size 1.73 mm to 8.6 mm (T.L.) are described from the graded series present in the collections to highlight the salient features during the larval development. This account also represents the first descriptions with illustrations of the mackerel larvae from the west coast of India.
