Mohan, Madan and Kunhikoya, K K (1985) Spawning biology of the skipjack, Katsuwonus pelamis (Linnaeus) from Minicoy waters. CMFRI Bulletin, 36. pp. 149-154.
One of the important technical approaches to investigate the resource characteristics of oceanic species of tunas is to study the phases of its life history. Subsequent to the results of investigations on spawning of skipjack in Minicoy waters by Raju (1964), there is no further information available on this aspect from the area. The present paper deals with the spawning of skipjack, Katsuwonus pelamis in Minicoy waters with particular reference to the reproductive process. Ova diameter measurements have been used to demonstrate the developmental changes that take place in the female gonads during the breeding season.
