Abstract

Young mackerels below 10 cm. in length were not so far reported or studied from the Kanara or Konkan Coast except for an isolated record from Karwar (Pradhan, 1956) and hence this report on their occurrence from this zone should be of considerable interest. Small-sized specimens were so far recorded only from Calicut (Bhimachar and George, 1952), Vizhinganl (Balakrishnan, 1957), Madras (Rao and Basheeruddin, 1953 and Kuthalingam, 1956) and Waltair Coast (Rao and Rao, 1957).
