The problems of immediate concern regarding the fishery of Indian oil-sardine, Sardinella longiceps, areas follows: Researches should be keyed up on three main lines, namely, behaviour studies through analysis of the distribution patterns of the fish in relation to the environment, population studies to know the homogeneity of the exploited population as well as its strength and parameters and spawning studies for detection, delimitation and evaluation of the spawning areas. Development should include redeployment of effort beyond the present fishing zone, introduction of purse seining on a large scale and the socio-economic problems of the fishing community.
