Abstract

The eel eggs are relatively rare in the Indian coastal waters and consequently their occurrence has been recorded only on a few occasions. Aiyar, Unny and Varkey (1944) were the k s t to observe the presence of eel eggs in the plankton of the Madras coast, but since the full paper has not so far been published details regarding the eggs are not available. Nair and Bhimachar (1950) recorded the occurrence of a few eggs and early larvae of the eels in the plankton off Tuticorin Bay, Gulf of Mannar. Their account deals with three varieties of eel eggs of which one was with an oil globule while the other two were without it.
