Ecobiology and Fisheries of an Economically Important Estuarine Fish, Sillago sihama (Forsskal)
MetadataShow full item record
Goa with about 105 km long coastline has vast resources of marine shellfish and finfish. Fish is a protein rich food and for the state of Goa it assumes special significance as it forms one of the chief components in the diet of about 90% of the population (Ansari, 2004). S. sihama is a highly esteemed fish, due to which it commands high price in the local market. It forms a minor but important fishery from both marine and inland waters in Goa. In view of its importance in the fishery and absence of any published information on its eco-biology and fisheries from Goa coast, the present study was undertaken for a period of sixteen months from January 2004 to April 2005.
