    Abstract

    Fishes belonging to family Sphyraenidae consists of voracious predators, are economically important and widely distributed in all equatorial, tropical and warm temperate seas (Allam et al., 2004; Akadje et al., 2013). These fishes are mostly pelagic, live solitary or in schools and are capable of adaptation to diverse ecological condition (Whitehead et al., 1986). Family Sphyraenidae comonly known as barracudas include only one genus, Sphyraena and with 27 valid species globally (Froese and Pauly, 2019). Of these, only 9 species have been confirmed in India (Eschmeyer and Fong, 2017). The obtuse barracuda is a small and commercially important species of barracuda reported along the Indian coast, and is usually found in bays, estuaries (Senou, 2001), rocky areas and sea grass beds (May and Maxwell, 1986). These fishes are exploited by various fishing gears and mainly caught in trawlnets, gillnets and outboard ringseines (Senou, 2001; Najmudeen et al., 2015).
