The Indian oil sardine

Balan, V and Reghu, R (1979) The Indian oil sardine. Marine Fisheries Information Service, Technical and Extension Series, 14 . pp. 1-13.



The Indian oil sardine, Sardinella longiceps Val. sustains one of the major pelagic fisheries of the country.Though the fish occurs all along the peninsular region in varying quantities, the highest abundance has been noticed off the Kerala and Karnataka coasts, especially between Alleppey and Karwar. During the decade from 1969 to 1978, the highest all India oil sardine catch, was made in 1970. From the existing catch trends it is indicated that the sardine catches during the 1980 season would not be far from the average of the last decade. In the light of the stock assessment studies it may be mentioned that increase in fishing effort would result in better catches.
