Abstract

In the present account details of landings of whale shark Rhineodon typus Smith from the fish landing centres at Injambakkam near Madras, Portonovo and Quilon. The detailed morphometric measurements of the specimens obtained were tabled and represented in the note. The low quantity and poor nutritional value of the meat and the absence of good markets make it highly unlikely that this species will be hunted like some others in the sea. So there is no danger of its extinction at present.
