Lazarus, S (1985) On the spawning season and early life history of Oil sardine Sardinella longiceps (Cuvier and Valenciennes) at Vizhinjam. Indian Journal of Fisheries, 32 (2). pp. 236-247.
Spawning and spent-recovering oil sardines Sardinella longiceps (Cuvier and Valenciennes) unusually occurred in May 1976 at Vizhinjam, far south of the limit of the traditional fishery for the species. It was also possible to collect the egg, though a single one, from the same locality coinciding with this occurrence. That there was considerable spawning activity of the species around this place was indicated by the occurrence of postlarvae and juveniles in sufficient abundance to form a minor fishery, during the immediately following period. Illustrated descriptions of some important stages of early life history based on the collections are given.
