Abstract

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.
