Abstract

Accounts of the diverse views expressed on the food of the grey mullets by various authors have been discussed in the works of Sarojini (1951), Pillay (1953) and Thomson (1954). The grey mullets have been described as plankton feeders, herbivores, omnivores, slime feeders, foul feeders, bottom feeders, etc. Despite the extensive records on the subject, in this group of fishes, there are very few accounts based on studies for an extended period of time in respect of different size-groups from different environs.
