Abstract

Skipjack tuna Katsuwonus pelamis are caught commercially at Minicoy by pole and line fishing using live-bait fishes. Relationship between live bait fish catches and skipjack tuna fishery during 1981-82 season is described here for the first time from Indian waters. An attempt is made here to compare the relative effectiveness of the different species of the bait fishes. The factors which may affect effectiveness of different live baits and ultimately tuna fishery at Minicoy are being discussed.
