    Abstract

    The family Kurtidae is represented by a single species, Kurtus indicus (Bloch) which formed one of the important commercial catches constituting i 2 ' 8% of the "B" class category of fishes. The present account deals with the magnitude of the fishery during April 1959 to March 1962, seasonal fluctuations, variation in size, depth-wise variation of the catch in the different fishing grounds, income from the fishery, sex ratio and maturity and food habits. The details presented in this account although preliminary in nature are nevertheless valuable in the absence of any information regarding the fishery and biology of tnhis species.
