Abstract

A knowledge on the fish fauna of the Exclusive Economic Zone of India is essential to study the distribution, zoogeography and biological aspects of the fish resources. The present check list of fishes is based on the pelagic and bottom trawl collections of FORV Sagar Sampada during her cruises 1-30, in the EEZ along both the east and west coasts of India during the years 1985-'87. This list is arranged alphabetically by families and genera. The list consists of 87 families and 242 species, including both conventional and nonconventional fish fauna of the Indian EEZ. The depth-wise distribution of the species in the latitude zones are also given.
