Sex ratio in oil sardine

Dhulkhed, M H (1973) Sex ratio in oil sardine. Indian Journal of Fisheries, 20 (1). pp. 236-239.



The studies on the sex-ratios of oil sardine spread over eleven seasons indicated that the females have a higher rate of growth, hence their preponderance in the various length groups of the population. The stabilisation of the oil sardine fishery in the recent years appears to have a close relation with the dominance of females in the O-year class which supports the fishery
