The occurrence of fingerlings of Sillago sihama in good quantities in May and OctQber in the tidal reaches of Pillaimadam area near Mandapam has been reported. The results of the culture experiments are encouraging. The areas which require further research inputs have also been identified, particularly in respect to the development of hatcheries for large scale production offish seed, nutrition of culture fishes, control of diseases and predators, induced maturation in captivity, methods of culture and coastal farm engineering.
