Abstract

Pomfrets form an Important component in the fishery off Mangrol and Veraval. They are landed by trawl nets and monofilament gill nets. The silver pomfret Pampas argenteus Is locally called "Vichhuda" and the black pomfret, Formio niger is called "Halva". The former dominates the pomfret fishery with peak landings in the monsoon and post monsoon period. The black pomfret does not show any regular pattern of landing.
