Pelagic fish such as oil sardine, Indian mackerel and white baits are very popular among the people of Kerala, especially those living in the coastal belt, since time immemorial. These fish offen saved them from malnutrition and starvation. Even today these are the favourite food fish of the poor and middle class people. In Maharashtra and Gujarat the popular pelagic fish is the Bombay duck. Pelagic fish include different varieties of sardines, carangids, seerfish and tunas of different sizes and taste that we love to include in our daily meal.
