Gnanamuttu, J C (1966) On the occurrence of the oriental bonito, Sarda orientalis (Temminck and Schlegel) along the Madras Coast. Journal of the Marine Biological Association of India, 8 (2). p. 365.
A few specimens of the Oriental Bonito, Sarda orientalis were obtained on 28-7-1966 during one of my routine visits to the fish landing place at Ayodhyakuppam in Madras city. This species continued to occur for nearly a week in small quantities in the gill net landings which also brought good catches of the Indian Mackerel, Rastrelliger kmagurta. It is quite likely that the Oriental Bonito constitutes a sporadic fishery along the east coast of India also during June to September which is the season for its fishery along the West coast.
