Khan, Mohammad Zafar (1982) A probable nursery ground of silverpomfret Pampus argenteus (Eupher) off Nawabunder (Gujarat). Indian Journal of Fisheries, 29 (1&2). pp. 257-261.
Large quantities of small-sized silverpomfret, Pampus argenteus (Eupher), mostly in the size range of 20-99 mm, were caught in dol net at Nawabunder over a number of months m 1979-80 and 1980-81 Ashing seasons. The estimated catch being 50.7 and 40.7 tonnes, respectively , the inshore area off Nawabunder seems to form an important nursery ground for silverpomfret. The need for appropriate regulatory measures on fktl-net fishing in these grounds, therefore, is indicated.
