Ramasomayajulu, K and Dhanaraju, K (1985) A confirmation of the occurrence of oil sardine, Sardinella longiceps Valenciennes, along the Orissa coast. Indian Journal of Fisheries, 32 (4). pp. 495-496.
Occurrence of the oil sardine, Sardinella longiceps Valenciennes, along the Orissa coast is confirmed. According to Whitehead (1973) and Rao (1973) the distribution of the oil sardine, Sardinella longiceps Valenciennes, in the east coast of India is along Tamil Nadu and Andhra Pradesh, and the species is known to contribute to stray catches there. Antony Raja (1968), however, includes the coast of Orissa for its 'occurrence under verification'. During the course of fishery survey work. Stray catches of oil sardine were observed at two landing centres in Ganjam District (Orissa State), namely. Bandar on 18-3-1984 and 6-4-1984 and Sonna Arjipally on 17-5-1985, the two places being separated by a distance of 7 km. The present observation confirms the doubt of Antony Raja as to the occurrence of the oil sardine along the Orissa coast.
