Bapat, S V and Radhakrishnan, N (1966) A note on the occurrence of abnormal specimens of Mackerel, Rastrelliger kanagurta (C.) On the Karwar Coast. Journal of the Marine Biological Association of India, 8 (2). pp. 363-364.
It is believed that the mackerel fishery along the west coast of India is based on only one species, namely, Rastrelliger kanagurta (C). Pradhan (1956) examined a large number of mackerel from the Canara coast for morphological variations, various body proportions, fin counts, gill rakers and vertebral count and found that they confirmed to the description of Rastrelliger kanagurta (Beaufort 1951). Abnormalities in the mackerel have been observed by Jones and Silas (1962).
