Abstract

During one of our visits to lake-mouth of Chilka lake for general fishery biological and hydrographic observations, we chanced to examine the gut contents of Ambassis gymnocephalus and to our surprise the stomach was packed with fish eggs. Since this came in the wake of our observations on the eggs and larval development of the Chilka mullet, Liza macrolepis, which forms a separate paper (unpublished) we were in no difliculty in placing the eggs observed in gut contents of A. gymnocephalus as belonging to mullet eggs. The lots observed contained eggs of L. macrolepis as well as those belonging to other species of mullets.
