Abstract

The early life history of Sardinella sirm lias been studied up to the prolarval stage by rearing the fertilized eggs collected from the plankton. The prolarvae attained a maximum length of 3.79 mm around 24 h after hatching. Subsequent larval stages, ranging in size from 4.69 to 30.0 mm, collected from the plankton as well as from the shore seine (Norma Vala) catches, have been illustrated and described.
