Abstract

Ribbon-fishes of the family Trichiuridae constitute one of the important commercial fisheries of India. There have been some earlier reports about their distribution, abundance and biological aspects but no attempt has been made towards a comprehensive study of this group of fishes. Four species of ribbon-fishes are now known to occur in the Indian Seas and while knowledge about their biology would be useful from the fishery point of view, it was also thought that a study of their systematic position and some aspects of anatomy would lead to a better understanding of the group as a whole. This account, which is mainly based on my thesis approved for the Doctor of Philosophy Degree in Zoology of the Banaras Hindu University, deals with the systematic position, some aspects of anatomy, biology and fishery of the ribbon-fishes from the Indian Seas.
