Maturity and spawning of the marine catfish, Tachysurus dussumieri (Valenciennes) along the South Kanara coast



Maturity and spawning of the marine catfish, Tachysurus dussumieri (Valenciennes) along the South Kanara coast



Proceedings of the Indian National Science Academy Part B Biological Sciences 461: 90-95



Results of a study on the maturity and spawning of the marine catfish, T. dussumieri, obtained from gill net catches at Malpe, Gangolli and from trawl catches at Mangalore from Sept. 1975 to May 1976 are presented. The species spawn once a year from Dec.-March with peak spawning in Feb. Females attain maturity at about 545 mm total length. The fecundity of the species varied from 105-184 eggs, with an average of 141 eggs/female. While a linear relationship was noticed between fecundity and the length of the fish, no relationship was observed between fecundity and the weight of the fish. In fish over 300 mm, females dominated over males from Oct.-Feb., whereas males dominated over females from March-May.
