Article_11.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.
