Abstract

The fish seed resources surveys conducted along the east and southwest coasts of India have shown the occurrence of fry and fingerlings of Chanos chanos in appreciable quantities during different months. An attempt is made to present a quantitative distribution of fry of the milkfish in space and time in the study area. The occurrence of spawners and fry along some stretches of the coast indicate the proximity of spawning grounds of the milkfish and these are delineated. The research programmes on controlled breeding of Chanos and its culture aspects underway at the Central Marine Fisheries Research Institute are also discussed.
