Abstract

Sardines and mackerels constitute 20 to 30 per cent or the total marine fish catch or India. Their behaviour has intrigued scientists and fisheries development officers, mainly because or the wide yearly Ouctuo.tions in the landings. It is" suspected that large stocks or 'hese fishes exist in !Orne parts of 'he Indian Ocean. However 'here is paucity or knowledge regarding theii breeding habits, breeding grounds and migrations. Considering these. groups as extremely important fOr adding to the fIsh landings with concomitant possibilities or establishment or industrial complexes based on fish as raw material, a Working Party was constituted in 1966 to colla,e inrormation relating to fisheries and biology, collect and compile a bibliography relating to sardines and mackerels, prepare maps and charts to indicate the occurrence of these fishes along the Indian coasts, and compile a list or active workers in the Hoe. The Working Party ha, now prepared a comprehensive report on 'he available inrormation and has indicated the further line or work to be carried out in this field. It is hoped that this would be a valuable contribution to the development or sardine and mackerel fisheries in India.
