    On 5.9.2009, a catch comprising 15 specimens of pompano dolphinfish, Coryphaena equiselis (Linnaeus, 1758) was landed at Chennai Fisheries Harbour by mechanised gillnet. The mechanised gillnets operated usually at a depth between 30 and 50 m at a distance of 30-40 km north of Chennai towards Andhra Pradesh. Since, trawlnets and mechanised gillnets are the main fishing gears operated off Chennai coast, fishes belonging to the family Coryphaenidae formed part of regular landings by these two gears. Normally common dolphinfish, Coryphaena hippurus formed regular fishery along this coast.
