Abstract

Larval and postlarval stages of Scomberomorus are rarely recorded from Indian waters. One postlarva of S. commerson 10.7 mm in total length was obtained in an oblique tow from 55 m upwards with a Bongo net at a station 60 m depth off Cochin in December 1975, fromR.V. Rastrelliger, The specimen is described and illustrated. Compared to postlarvae of other Scomberomorus spp., the postlarva of S. commerson has a relatively longer head with a longer upper jaw and pointed snout. Myotome count in the present specimen is 46.
