Abstract

On 19th April 1962, while examining a sample of oil sardine caught by cast net at Ullal, an unusual development of the ovary was observed in a fish measuring 174 mm (total length).. It did not differ either in external features or in internal anatomy from that of a normal one except in the development and disposition of gonads as shown in figure Raju (1960) has described the occurrence of ovary with divided lobes and other gonadial abnormalities in the oceanic skipjack, Katsuwonus pelamis (L.) from the Laccadive Sea
