Abstract

In the commercial exploitation of marine fishes along the Bombay and Saurashtra coasts, Polydactylus indicus (locally called 'Dara'), one of the widely distributed polyoemid species in the tropical waters, has always occupied a pro- minent place, as is revealed i~ the accounts by Mohamed (1955). Jayaraman et al (1959), Nayak (1959) and Deshpande (1962). During the last decade and a half there has been regular trawl fishing in these waters. Nayak (loc. cit.) has given a deiailed account of 'Dara' catches from the otter-trawl operations of the Japanese vessel 'Taiyo Maru No. 17' and from the otter-trawl and bull-trawl operations of the cutters M.T. 'Ashok' and M.T. 'Pratap' belonging to the Government of India Deep Sea Fishing Station, Bombay, for the period 1950-57.
