The results of exploratory trawl'ng undertaken from 1961 to 1965 on the continental shelf along the north-western part of the Bay of Bengal, between latitudes 16''40'N and 2rOO'N are presented. The composition of the catch, the distribution of the various categories of fishes and their relative abundance in space and time are indicated. It is estimated that in commercial fishing, with Visakhapatnam as the base, a 25 m side-trawler with 15 m trawl should be able to land 250-390 metric tons…

A PRELIMINARY STUDY ON THE PRAWN FISHERY OF BIG TRAWLERS ALONG THE NORTHEAST COAST OF INDIA
The number of big trawlers operating along the northeast coast increased from 55 in 1983-84 to 76 in 1985-86, increasing the prawn landings from 2353 t in 1983-84 to 3043 t in 1985-86. Catch per hour

A variety of species of sciaenids are known to occur along the east and west coasts of India (Lai Mohan 1969) where these form one of the commonest of groups in the fish catches. From the west coast,
On the commercial trawl fisheries off KakinadaDuring 1967-70
TLDR
Analysis of the trawler landings during 1967-70 showed the existence of rich prawn grounds of Kakinada, particularly in the shallower regions not exceeding 20 m in depth, and two peaks were observed in the total catch, one in February-April and one in August-November.
STUDIES ON OCEANOGRAPHIC CONDITIONS OF THE SURFACE AND BOTTOM WATERS OF THE BAY OF BENGAL OFF VISAKHAPATNAM DURING 1968-1972
The inshore hydrographic data in the region off Waltair for the period from October 1968 to March 1972 were observed in order to study the seasonal variation of temperature, salinity, dissolved
On the cat-fish resources of the coasts of andhra pradesh,Orissa and West Bengal
Cat-fishes form 3-11% of the annual fish eatches on the north.east coast of India (comprising the coasts of Andhra Pradesh, Orissa and West Bengal). The commercial cat-fish fishery is confined to

In an account of exploratory trawling from 1961 to 1965 on the continental shelf along the north-western Bay of Bengal, Sekharan et al. (1968) gave estimates of the relative abundance of cat-fishes,
Proceedings of the Second Workshop on Scientific Results of FORV Sugar Sampudu
ABSTRACT At attempt is made to analyse the bottom trawl fishing data collected by 91 cmises of FORV Sagar Sampada (1985 - '91). The vessel trawled in 544 stations spread over both the coasts up to a

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.
Cephalopod bionomics, fisheries and resources of the Exclusive Economic Zone of India
TLDR
A critical look at the situation throughout the world indicates that beyond the continental shelf in the tropical aseas major conventional resources are tunas and tuna like fishes, bill fishes, pelagic shraks and squids.
