Abstract

Ratnagiri and Malwan, on the coast of Maharashtra State, support a good tuna fishery which is of considerable importance to the local fishermen. Except for the preliminary note by Ranade (1961), no scientific information is available on the tuna fishery of this coast. With a view to enhance our knowledge on the fishery and biology of tunas from this area, a survey was conducted by the Central Marine Fishereis Research Institute during September to December, 1979. The present account deals with the relevant information collected during the period of survey and thereafter.
