Abstract

The present note reports the absence of the pelvic fin of the right side of the fish Caranx carangus Bloch from the South-East Coast of India.- It has been found that, while the pelvic fin on the left side and its girdle are normal, but for slight thickening of the 4th and 5th rays, the absence of the fin on the right side may be congenital.
