    Abstract

    Eight spscimens of abnormal mackerel caught at Cochin are described. Three of them had deformed tails. One was hunchbacked. Two had unusually long mandibles, while another one had a short mandible and a freak maxilla. The last specimen had an anomalous anal fin. The occurrence of abnormality was one in eight hundred. Irregularity in the caudal region was the most common abnormality.
