The occurrence of young oil sardines Sardine/la longiceps noticed in good quantities from 10-24 November, 1988 in indigenous boat seine (Thuri valai) catches is reported here. The catches were obtained in the very early hours of the day at 3 to 5 metres depth just about a kilometre away from the landing centre at Kasimedu. It is not uncommon to find young oil sardine along the west coast of India from July to October. The present observation is the first on record showing that young oil sardine occurs in fairly good quantities during November along the Madras coast.
