Kuthalingam, M D K (1961) Observations on the feeding habits of some sardines together with the key to the identification of the young ones of the genus Sardinella. Records of the Indian Museum, 59 (4). pp. 455-469.
The nutrition of fishes provide valuable data not only for determining the food charts, but also the seasonal scarcity, shoaling and migration of fishes and such information will be useful to commercial fisheries in forecasting the movements of the fish into or out of their feeding grounds. It is hoped that the present account on the food of larvae, juveniles and adults of Sardinella sirm, S. gibbasa, S. melanura, S. clupeaides,. S. albella S. fimbriala, S. sindensis and S. longiceps, together with a key to the identification of some young stages of sardines, will add to our knowledge of Indian Sardines.
