Abstract

Serranid fishes are popularly known as 'Groupers' or 'Rock cods' and locally 'Kalava'.In view of their importance in the capture and culture fisheries, the present account on the record of giant female groupers [Epinephelus tauuina (Forskal), Epinephelus malabaricus (Bloch and Schneider) and Promicrops lanceolatus (Bloch)] of more than two metres in total length and their sex ratio] in the natural population from the Indian coast (Table 1) deserves special attention.
