    Abstract

    Bull sharks Carcharhinus leucas were captured by a modified gillnet, made of cotton twine from Pulicat lagoon during 2005-06. The bull sharks exhibit unique philopatric behaviour in the lagoon for parturition. The four specimens caught were all pregnant. The value of the sharks ranged from Rs. 20000-22000.
