Abstract

Aceies indicus H. Milne Edwards constitutes an important fishery iu Maharashtra State. On a close study of samples collected from Sassoon Dock and Versova, two principal landing centres ior Acetes, it was observed that two more species were present in the catches. They were identified as Acetes johni Nataraj and Acetes japonicus Kishinouye. Though a formal record exists for A. johni from plankton collection off Saurashtra and Kerala Coasts, the fishery value for the species is reported for the first time.
