Abstract

The leptocephali of Indian waters have received very little attention till a decade back when the first attempt to metamorphose them in the laboratory was successfully accomplished (Nair, 1946 a. 1947). Since then , the systematic study of the lcptocephali of the coastal waters has received I increasing attention in spite of the difficulties encountered in referring them to their adults and a few important papers have appeared in recent years.
