Abstract

The survey conducted by FORV Sagar Sampada during 1985-91 (90 cruises) revealed the occurrence of ribbonfish in 56 stations out of 904 stations where fishing was conducted. It was reported from 41 stations along the west coast and 14 stations along the east coast. About 14 tonne of ribbonfish was caught in these operations which formed 4.8% of the total fish catch. West coast was more productive and contributed 93.6% of the catch, while the east coast only 6.4%. It abundantly occurred in the southwest, centralwest, northwest and northeast coasts. Depth-wise study revealed that major portion of the catch was obtained from within the 100 m depth zone. The dominant species reported was Trichiurus lepturu
