Abstract

Studies on otoliths and scales for determining the age and rate of growth f Indian fishes have been reported only during comparatively recent years. It is well known that. the, otoliths and scales of several species of fishes in the temperate region possess distinct annular rings. This character has been extensively used in determining the year class composition of fish populations.
