Narasimham, K A (1972) Occurrence of early juveniles of the ribbonfish, Trichiurus lepturus linn. In the Kakinada area With notes on their food. Indian Journal of Fisheries, 19 (1&^2). pp. 210-214.
The occurrence of 425 juveniles of Trichiurus lepturus, measuring 37-120 mm, during March 1966 to October 1970 off Kakinada is reported. Food analysis of 153 juveniles revealed that in the smaller juveniles calanoid copepods predominated while the larger juveniles preferred fish larvae, prawn larvae and a variety of crustaceans. The spawning period appears to be prolonged from January to September with peak activity in February-June in the offshore waters beyond the 30 metre line. Ic is inferred that the juveniles are pelagic in habitat.
