Ehiring the period 1984 -'88, catches and catch per hour values of Pentaprion hngimanus fluctuated from year to year and month to month but the annual average catches together with catch rates showed increasing trend.

Average fecundity was found to be 3,023 eggs and fecundity increased with weight of ovary and to a less extent with the length of fish.
