Abstract

The prelude for this study was an investigation conducted by me in 1988 - '89 on the bionomics of three marine ornamental fishes from Lakshadweep which emboided results of research mainly concerning biological aspects of feeding and reproduction. Motivated by the richness of reef fishes, their fascinating relationships evident from casual observations and from the basics obtained previously, it was considered desirable to undertake investigations on a broader scale which might open up a nearly dormant field of fisheries science in India.
