The lesser sardines comprising several species of Sardinella other than S.longiceps show wide distribution in the tropics and are one of the major pelagic fishery resources of our country. Though occurring in the landings of all the maritime states, they particularly contribute to a lucrative fishery along the southeast and southwest coasts. These shoaling species exhibit all the characteristics of tropical pelagic resources with annual and seasonal fluctuations. Of the 15 species of lesser sardines in the Indo-Pacific region, 12 occur in the Indian waters
