Abdussamad, E M and Joshi, K K and Zacharia, P U and Jayabalan, K and Mohamed, O M M J Habeeb and Balasubramanian, T S (2009) Feeding congregation of ribbonfish, Trichiurus lepturus juveniles in oceanic waters and their targeted exploitation by deepsea trawlers along the Tuticorin coast in Gulf of Mannar. Marine Fisheries Information Service, Technical and Extension Series, 199. pp. 6-8.
Ribbonfishes supported commercial fishery at Tuticorin prior to nineteen nineties. But reports suggested that their stock and fishery declined considerably thereafter. Their fishery during 2000- 2006 was represented by occasional landings of small quantity of ribbonfish by trawls. Average production by trawls at Tuticorin fishing harbour during the period was 250 t. They represent about 0.7% of the total fish catch of the period.
