    Fishery biological data of the striped marlin, Tetraptvl'us audax (PHILIPPI) (Jap: Makajiki) obtainp.d by the Japanese commercial longline vessels in the Indian Ocean during the period 1965-1975 were analysed, the results presented and discussed. The annual catch has decreased considerably since 1967, but the catch rate showed no definite tendency to increase or decrease. Distribution of the average monthly relative density showed that seasonal concentration occurred in the east African coast between equator and 10 0 S.; southern and western Arabian Sea, Bay of Bengal and north-western Australian waters.
