Abstract

Bhokshi nets are operated regularly at Manori creek at Marve for prawns and fishes of the creek, landed with juveniles fishes of two species of quality fishes as , Lutjanus russelli (Bleeker) and Scatophagus argus var. tetracanthus (Lacepede) as incidental catches. It is quite probable that this unusual landings of juveniles in bag nets in good numbers was due to the young ones coming into the creek owing to the availability of food in the creeks during monsoon period and also to escape strong currents in the foreshore areas. During this period Bhokihi net operations are harmful for juvenile fishes and therefore it is advisable that these nets be operated with larger mesh size at the cod end.
