    Abstract

    The important clupeoids of Kanara coast are Sardinella longiceps, Sardinella fimbriata, Opisthopterus tardoore, Kowala kowal and anchovies. A detailed study on some aspects on the biology of Sardinella fimbriata at Karwar was taken up from September 1958. Nair (1959) has shown that the west coast production of this species is on an average one and a half times more than the east coast and that the peak period of the fishery along the east coast is during December-January, whereas along the west coast two peak periods are seen i.e., March-April and November-December. From the catch statistics collected at Karwar during the last few years, it is noted that this fishery commences sometime in September and lasts up to May-June of the following year, the primary and secondary peaks being September-November and December-March.
