Abstract

Clupeoid fishes, chiefly represented by the sardines {Sardinella spp.), the whitebaits {Anchoviella spp.), the anchovies (Thrissocles spp.) and the rainbow sardines {Dussumieria spp.), form an important fishery at Lawson's Bay, Waltair and the catch statistics for a period of seven years (1950-56) show that on an average about 393 tons of these fishes are landed annually constituting about 37-5 per cent, of the total catch. The sardines rank first in importance and form on an average about 22 per cent, of the total catch.
