Waghmare, K B and Karbhari, J P and Aravindakshan, M (1990) On bumper catches of lizard fishes at Sassoon dock, Bombay. Marine Fisheries Information Service, Technical and Extension Series, 103 . pp. 15-16.



Eventhough the appearance of Lizard fishes of the genus Sauridain the catches is not significant, landings by trawlers are showing fishery value for these fishes particularly at Sassoon Dock, Bombay during months of March, April and May. Species Saurida tumbil and Saurida undosquamis are of special interest as the landings and are sent outside Maharashtra in iced condition. The percentage of their occurrence during 1989 landings is noted to be 80 % of S. tumbil and 20 % of S. undosquamis. The maximum length recorded for S. tumbil is 437 mm and S. undosquamis 327 mm. The size of 437 mm recorded for S. tumbil appears to be the largest for the species from Indian waters.
