Abstract

Mesopelagic fishes distributed in the upper aphotic zone beyond 200 m depth range are seldom encountered in commercial landings. Exploratory surveys have shown that they are available in plenty in the 200 to 600 m depth range in the Indian EEZ. In spite of the fact that they have a nutritive value at par with the quality fishes, these fishes are not popular as food because of their non-accessibility to commercial fishery. Nevertheless, on 28-8-1995, a large quantity of the mesopelagic fish, Chlorophthalmus agassizi Bonaparte was landed by the commercial trawlers at Cochin Fisheries Harbour
