Jones, S and Kumaran, M (1964) New records of fishes from the seas around India. Part 1. Journal of the Marine Biological Association of India, 6 (2). pp. 285-306.



Since the monumental work of Day on ' The Fishes of India' completed in 1878 additions to our knowledge of the ichthyofauna of the seas around India have been comparatively of a desultory nature except for the contributions of Alcock on the deep sea fishes based on the collections of the investigator. Though most of the coastal fishes have been described by various authors, very little was known about the pelagic and bathypelagic fishes of the oceanic waters and of the reef and lagoon dwelling forms of the coral islands off the coast of India.
