Abstract

A small quantity of the carangid rainbow runner Elegatis bipinnulata which can easily be mistaken to be a longer mackerel or seer fish was landed on 23.11.2000 at Bhidia trawl landing centre. This species had no scutes on the lateral line, instead had pored scales with rainbow like colour pattern over the body, shape very much resembled to that of Sconiberomoras guttatus.
