Lizardfishes (Family: Synodontidae) constitute an important component of the demersal fish resources of India. The world lizardfish production was 50,576 t. (average during 1982-91) and India contributed to 18,680 t. (37 %). This group is reported as an important bycatch in shrimp trawlers in tropical and subtropical seas. Though considered as a supporting fishery, this group assumes significance by virtue of the high nutritive value and their acceptance as food both in the fresh and dry condition. Nevertheless, information on their fishery, biology and utilisation is fractional. Therefore, an attempt has been made here to bring out the present status of the fishery, biology and utilization of lizardfish resources in India.
