|PDF - Published Version|
Rhabdosargus sarba shoals, as observed in Vizhinjam area during 1979, play havoc to the cultured mussels. 250 ropes containing good quantity of harvestable mussels are reported to have been comi^etely destroyed by predation by this fish. Attempts to control predation did not yield results. In addition to lobster predation noticed comnHmly in the area, Rhabdosargus sarba has added a new dimension to the problem.
