Abstract

Our knowledge of the biology of Scomberomorus spp. which constitute a valuable fishery along the East Coast of India is very meagre. Investigations on the biology of these fish were ,initiated by a few workers since the beginning of the last decade. On the East Coast, Vijayaraghavan (1955) gave an account of the life-history of Scomberomorus guttatus from Madras ; Krishnamoorthy (1958) studied the fluctuations in the fishery and maturity of the same species from the Gulf of Mannar area ; and Kuthalingam (1959) made a brief mention of the food and feeding habits of post larvae, juveniles, and adults of S. lineolatus. On the west coast, Venkataraman (1960) gave an account of the food and feeding relationships of some inshore fishes which also included a short account of the food of S. guttatus, S. commerson and Cybium interrupturn. Kumaran (1962) recoided the food of the juveniles of S. commerson and S. guttatus of the South Kerala Coast.
