Some aspects of the biology of 'Ghol' Pseudosciaena diacanthus (Lacepede)
TLDR
Pseudosciaena diacanthus locally called 'ghol', ranks first as a commercially very important offshore sciaenid, forming 5 to 8% of the trawler catches.
Food and feeding of lizard fishes (Saurida spp.)From north western part of Bay of Bengal
The food and feeding of Saurida turnbil was studied with reference to size of fish, time (seasonal and diurnal), regions (latitude zones), sex and maturity. Though there was not much difference in
Length-weight relationship in Saurida tumbil andS. undosquamis and relative condition in s. tumbil
Length-weight relationship in Saurida tumbil and S. undosquamis and relative condition in s. tumbil
Maturation and spawning of lizard fishes (Saurida spp.)From northwestern part of Bay of Bengal
TLDR
The available data indicates that the spawning and maturation in S. tumbil is protracted, extending from October to Marcti, with the peak in November- December and that the eggs are shed in 5 or 6 batches.
STUDIES ON THE AGE DETERMINATION OF 'GHOL', PSEUDOSCI^NA DIACANTHUS (LACEPEDE) BY MEANS OF SCALES AND OTOLITHS
TLDR
Work on the biology and fishery of Pseudosciana diacanthus occurring in the waters off Maharashtra and Gujarat coasts was started in March, 1958 and during the course of two years study, it has been found that the scales and otohths of this species show growth checks which can be utilised for the determination of age and growth.
AGE AND GROWTH OF 'GHOL', PSEUDOSCIAENA DIACANTHUS (LACEPEDE) IN BOMBAY AND SAURASHTRA WATERS
TLDR
The scales and otoliths of 'Ghol', Pseudosciaena diacanthus (Lacepede), a commercially important sciaenid in Bombay and Saurashtra waters, are useful as age indicators of this species and studies based on these structures and the length frequency data for the period 1958-62 are presented.
"Ghol-Dara" fishery off Bedi port in the Gulf of Kutch
Trawling done along the Saurashtra coast has shown that fishing grounds oft Dwarka near the mouth of the Gulf of Kutch compare favourably with some of the richest ones in the world (Jayaraman et
Systematics and comparative Osteology ofIndian lizard fishes (Saurida spp.)
TLDR
A campaison of specimens of tunlbil and undosquamis of Bay of Bengal with those of East China and Japan seas indicatled that these species from Indian and Japanese waters may represent different races.
AGE AND GROWTH OF LIZARDFISHES (SAURIDA SPP.) FROM THE NORTHWESTERN BAY OF BENGAL
Legnth-frequency study shows that 5. tumbil may grow to 170/190, 270/ 290, 350/370 and 410/430 mm respectively at the end of 1st, 2nd, 3rd and 4th year. These growth rates are similar to those
ESTIMATES OF MORTALITY AND YIELD PER RECRUIT OF 'GHOL' PSEUDOSCIAENA DIACANTHUS (LACEPEDE)
TLDR
The mortality rate and yield per recruit of 'ghol, Pseudosciaena diacanthus, are estimated from the age composition of catches of the bull-trawlers of the New India Fisheries Ltd., Bombay, for the years 1958 to 1961 to show that the catch from the stock can be stepped up considerably over the present level.
