On the distribution and related ecology of Pomfrets from the Indian seas

S. Pati

Abstract



Fishable stocks of pomfrets occur along the States of Gujarat, Maharashtra, West Bengal and Orissa. These fishing areas are located between latitudes 18 degrees N to 22 degrees N. A gradual decline in the abundance of these stromateid fishes is observed from north to south on either side of the Indian coastline. The areas of abundance are characterised by broad continental shelves. Of the various oceanic properties high values of chlorophyll-a and primary and zooplankton production in the regions of commercial fishing are of interest
