Abstract

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.
