Rajapackiam, S and Mohan, S and Rudramurthy, N and Vasu, R (2011) Unusual landings of cusk eel Monomitopus nigripinnis at Chennai. Marine Fisheries Information Service (209). p. 14.
At Kasimedu Fishing Harbour, Chennai, about 40-50 multiday thangal trawlers operate regularly. Out of this, 3-6 trawlers operated daily for deepsea prawns during the period Feb - April, 2008. Deepsea fishes were landed along with deepsea prawns. An unusually high catch of the cusk eel Monomitopus nigripinnis (Family: Ophidiidae) was recorded during the said period. The deepsea fishing operations were carried out in the south-east direction within a distance of 40-60 km at a depth of 150-200 fathoms. The same species came in 2009 also in low quantities.
