Abstract

At Vizhinjam on the southwest coast of India almost the entire catch of the cuttlefish Sepia pharaonis is taken in a modified typeof hooks, the hand-jigs. The hand-jig consists mainly of a small iron rod with tires of hooks and a long monofilament line. The baited jig is operated on the sea bottom from a catamaran and normally one cuttlefish is taken per haul. A brief note on the modern squid jigging as practised in Japan is also given.
