A very high catch of juvenile threadfin breams was observed at New Ferry Wharf, Mumbai in March 2007 by shrimp trawlers. The fishing was at about 60-80m depth to the southwest direction of Mumbai (off Ratnagiri) and the fishing duration was for a period of seven days. The total estimated monthly catch of threadfin breams in March '07 was 186.3t. The seasonal abundance of threadfin breams over a period of 3 years from 2004-2006 showed that the maximum catch was during March-April with a smaller peak during September-October.
