Lazarus, S (1987) Studies on the age and growth of trenched sardine, Sardinella sirm (Walbaum), from Vizhinjam, Southwest coast of India. Indian Journal of Fisheries, 34 (2). pp. 188-192.
The age and growth of Sardinella sirm has been studied based on the length-frequency data collected from Vizhinjam during the period 1975-78. Calculated size of S. sirm at the end of one year was 196 mm and the maximum attainable theoretical size was 210 mm. Growth rate was observed to differ highly during the different quarters. Calculated sizes indicated that, with aging, growth rate steadily decreased.
