Abstract

The biology of the Brown Pomfret, Parastromatells niger (Bloch), has not been studies so far, though it forms a fishery of considerable importance along all the Indian coast and a major fishery along that or Saurashtra. Our knowledge on pomfrets is very meagre, being restricted to the general accounts given by Chidambaram & Venkataraman (1946), Moses (1947), Devanesan & Chidambaram (1948), and other fisheries reports. Rege (1958) made a preliminary study on the biology of the Silver Pomfret, Pampus argenteus (Bloch), in Bombay waters.
