Abstract

The occurrence of young oil sardine in large proportions in the inshore waters of Bombay is not very usual. The occurrence was noticed during January and February 1971. They were caught in 'dol' nets being operated from machanised boats just near and around the floating light house in Bombay. Size frequencies, scale studies and stomach contents were studied. A comparison of surface water temperature and salinity was made to see if they were responsible for the unusual large scale migration of these young oil sardines to the inshore waters of Bombay.
