Abstract

The length-weight relationship of Scx)liodon laticaudus was calculated for males and females separately since regression coefficients in respect of sexes were significant. This shark prefers to feed on prawns during the premonsoon and monsoon periods and on fishes during the postmonsoon period. A change in the feeding habit of the shark is seen when it attains adolescence. Starvation of females above 350 mm during pregnancy is also observed.
