Abstract

Scomberomorus guttatus (Bloch and Schneider)This is the commonest seerfish in Indian waters and is fairly widely distributed in the Indo-Pacific from the Persian Gulf in the east to the Western Pacific from Taiwan to Indonesia. It attains a length of about | of a metre. According to Munro (1943) S. guttatus does not occur in Australian waters and the specimens formerly identified as S. guttatus were most likely either S. queens- landicus or S. semifasciatus. Some may even refer to S. niphonius.
