    Abstract

    A single specimen of longspine grouper was collected at a depth of 30–40 m by a single day trawler from the waters of Gujarat. The species is considered as ‘least concern’ by IUCN. The fish was examined for key morphometric and meristic characters such as body length and depth, head length, fin lengths, spine and rays counts, lateral line scale count, gill rakers count, shape and distribution pattern of spots on the body. The present study reports the first record of the species from north-west coast of India describing its extension of geographical distribution and addition of one more species to the biodiversity of Gujarat.
