Abstract

In a previous note (Jones, 1960) mention was made of the collection of Spratelloides delicatulus (Bennett) from the vicinity of Bitra and Agathi in the Laccadive Archipelago recording for the first time its occurrence in Indian waters. Also in view of its shoaling behaviour and the habit of getting attracted to light the possibility of its utilization as a live-bait for the oceanic skipjack, Katsuwonus pelamis (Linnaeus) was indicated.
