Abstract

While examining a collection of eels from Sassoon Dock- the principal fish landing place of Bombay City a few specimens of Neenchelys buitendiiki Weber & de Beaufort were obtained in April 1953. The species not having been recorded from India so far, regular searches were made in the subsequent fish catches for further material and relevant data regarding its occurrence. It was revealed that the species is not rare in this locality, and a large number of specimens was obtained.
