A note on the biology of the ‘Koth’, Otolithoides brunneus (Day)

Kutty, M N (1967) A note on the biology of the ‘Koth’, Otolithoides brunneus (Day). Journal of the Marine Biological Association of India, 9 (1). p. 197.



While the importance of the ' Koth' as a trawl fishery of considerable importance in the Bombay Coast has been shown by Jayaraman et al. (1956) and Rao (1967), accounts on the biology of the species are lacking except for some observations on the scales and otoliths for age determination by Kutty (1961) and a few notes included in the studies on its fishery, cited above. With a view to a fuller understanding of the biology of the ' Koth' investigations on this fish occurring along the Bombay coast were made during the years 1958-1961, a summary of the results of which is presented in the present note.
