Abstract

Fishes of the genus Pseudanthias (Family Serranidae) also known as “fairly basslets” or “anthias” are mostly small sized, reef-dwelling fishes, which are highly sought after marine ornamental fish in the international market due to its beautiful coloration and striking patterns. An unusual landing of the anthiine fish, Pillai’s anthias Pseudanthias pillai was observed at Neendakara Fisheries Harbour, Kollam on 9.5.2018 (Fig.1). About 750 kg (25 boxes of ≅30 kg each) of anthiine fishes, dominated by Pseudanthias pillai (99%) and Pseudanthias spp. were landed in a multiday (3 days fishing trip) trawler operated at 120-130 m depth off Kollam waters, Arabian Sea.
