Sardine fishery

Nair, R V (1951) Sardine fishery. Handbook of Indian Fisheries, 51 . pp. 55-57.



The clupeoids, which constitute about a third of the marine fish caught in India, are chiefly represented in Indian waters by the sardines (Sardinella), anchovies (Thrissocles), whitebait (Anchoviella), rainbow sardine (DU8sumieria),-white sardine (Kowala),etc. Of these, the sardines, represented by nine species, constitute an important fishery along the West and South East Coasts of India. A few species like S. longiceps, S. fimbriata, S. gibbosa and S. albella occur in large shoals.
