A racial study of silver pomfret Pampus argenteus (Euphrasen) from the Orissa Coast

S. Pati


Observation on racial study of silver pomfret Pampus argenteus inhabiting the Orissa Coast, India was undertaken for the first time. Statistical treatments of meristic and morphometric characters of stocks were made from three widely spaced sampling areas. The morphometric characters chosen were head length, predorsal distance, preanal distance, snout length, pectoral fin length and maximum depth. Dorsal fin rays, analfin rays and gill rakers were selected for meristic counts. Results indicate that the three stocks are very similar and the fishery draws on one homogeneous population
