Abstract

Specimens of Nemipteriis delagoae Smith from Vizhinjam have a longer first pelvicfin ray, a slightly more body depth and a bigger snout than the specimens described by Smith (1939). There is no significant difference in the Regression coefficient between males and females and a common equation for lengthweight relationship is fitted. The species is a carnivore feeding mainly on crustaceans, fishes molluscs and annelids.
