Abstract

Several aspects of reproduction of the milkfish are still baffling and the progressive reproductive phases of the gonads and the spawning cycle in the fish are not properly understood. The validity of a statement by Chaudhuri (1916) that the ripe roe of Chanos is dried, smoked and sold by fishermen around the Chilka Lake which conveys an impression of common occurrence of the breeders was inquired into and it is understood thai the fish are now rare in these places.
