The Indian mackerel in 1978

CMFRI, FRAD (1979) The Indian mackerel in 1978. Marine Fisheries Information Service, Technical and Extension Series , 8 . pp. 1-11.



The Indian mackerel, Rastrelliger kanagurta (Cuvier) constitutes a fishery of great commercial importance in the country. The annual average catch of the mackerel during 1950-78 period was around 70,000 tonnes and it formed about 8% of the marine fish catch. With the introduction of purse seining, the future trends of this fishery in space and time have to be rather closely watched and this report for 1978 hence becomes quite timely and appropriate. The annual landings from 1974 onwards reveal an increasing trend in this fishery.
