    Abstract

    The annual production of elasmobranchs in India during 1982-83 to 1984-85 period was around 59,000 t, of which sharks accounted for 37500 t (64%). Tamil Nadu, Gujarat, Maharashtra and Kerala together take the bulk of the catch. Of the 65 species reported from Indian waters, over 20 species (families Carcharhinidae and Sphymidae) contribute to the fishery. Feeding and breeding habits, intra-uterine embryos and growth characteristics of a few species are described here.
