An experimental drag net made of velon screen, five metres long, was operated in the Ennore estuary from three fixed Stations (shown in the sketch) to a distance of 20 metres every week for two years during 1983-84. Maximum number of juveniles were collected from Station III which was farthest from the bar mouth and minimum number from Station I which was nearest to the bar mouth. Also the size range of the juveniles collected from Station III was found to be more. Juveniles of M.dobsoni were maximum followed by the juveniles of M.monoceros and P.indicus. Juveniles of P.semisulcatus and P.monodon occurred in good numberswhen algal bed was formed. Juveniles of P.indicus were noted in large numbers in shady areas and at the sides of moored boats. The results of these operations are presented in the paper.
