Abstract

During the collection of fishes from the tidal zones at Rupan, Okha, and Kiew point (Gujarat coast) during 1962-63, a few specimens of Muraenichthys schultzei Bleeker were obtained from the mud and beneath the stones. The specimens were collected by draining the water from the tide pools and then scooping the mud. As they are burrowers and capable of moving fast in the mud and among rocks difficulty was encountered in collecting them. Often formalin was poured into the crevices and holes to evict them.
