The thread - fin breams, locally known as 'Lal machala' constitute 0.6 to 12.39% of the total catch during the different months of their landing at Veraval. The thread-fin breams form an important demersal fishery resource at Veraval. During the mid September to October beginning, the trawlers brought a heavy catch (estimated to be about 2.400 tonnes) of Nemipterus spp. and the observations were recorded during that period. In the catches two species viz. N. mesoprion and N. japonicus were recorded, where N. Mesoprion dominated (94.55%). Biological observations and economical status was also studied.
