Abstract

Along the Waltair Coast the fishing season for Sardinella fimbriata starts in October-November and terminates in May-June, whereas for Sardinella gibbosa the fishing season is shorter, March to Juiie-July. The average annual landings of both the species together are 73 t. S. fimbriata measuring less than 120 mm domi- ' nates the esriier part of the season and larger specimens measuring more than 120 mm dominate the later part. The reverse is the case for 5. gibbosa. Both the sardines feed on planktonic copepods, diatoms and larvae of other organisms. Length-weight relationship, sex ratio and fecundity hajve been studied.
