Abstract

One of the most sensational items of news received in fishery circles in recent years has been an instance of fish mortality in the Arabian Sea during the second week of June 1957 estimated to involve over 20 million tons of fish nearly equaling world's annual catch. Attempts were also made to explain the phenomenon based on the information available on similar incidents elsewhere. Unfortunately no specimen was collected and as such the identity of the fish remained a matter of speculation.
