    Abstract

    In the present communication, an attempt is made to piece together almost all the available information on the food and feeding relationship of the mackerel, Rastrelliger kanagurta (C.)from the relevant notes and publications available in the Indo-Pacific area, in order to get a clear picture of the ecology of feeding of the fish so that future work could be planned to yield maximum benefit in the understanding and management of this important fishery. A study of the literature on the topic has shown that most of the data on this aspect have resulted from observations made during studies on the biology of common food fishes. Often these investigations are based on examination of a few samples from restricted areas and not covering all sizes of rowth. that constitute the diet of the Indian mackerel. Nevertheless, the available information is useful for a general assessment of the major elements
