    Abstract

    In this communication, an abnormally hermaphroditic specimen of common dolphin fish, Coryphaena hippurus, is reported from Indian waters. Morphological and histological studies clearly revealed the presence of developing ovary and testis with series of gametogenetic cells. This is the first case of hermaphroditism in common dolphin fish.
