    A specimen of the Rough triggerfish, Canthidermis maculata (Bloch, 1786) was landed by a multiday trawler on 25th November 2015 at Mangrol Fisheries Harbour, Gujarat. The specimen was brownish grey in colour with characteristic white spots all over the body including the head. It measured 309 mm and 256 mm in Total length and Standard length respectively with a weight of 580 g (Fig. 1). The fish is usually found in areas having sandy, muddy or rocky bottoms at a depth range of 50-100 m and is reported from the Western Indian Ocean

    The Central Marine Fisheries Research Institute regularly undertakes Marine Fisheries Census for all the maritime states of the country. Based on the census report of Puducherry a comparative study focusing mainly on population, fishing villages, landing centres, sex ratio, religion, BPL, education and occupation was carried out for two census period viz. years 2005 and 2010. The Union Territory of Puducherry comprises of four coastal districts namely, Yanam, Puducherry, Karaikal and Mahe with coastline extending over 45 km

    Front line demonstrations (FLD) evolved by the Indian Council of Agricultural Research are conducted under the close supervision of scientists of the National Agriculture Research System, where in technologies are demonstrated for the first time by the scientists themselves before being fed in to the main extension system of the state machinery. Post-front line demonstration impact analysis on open sea cage culture of finfishes and lobsters, among Sidi tribes of Gujarat aimed at assessing the socio-personal, socio-psychological and socio-economic and behavioural characteristics of Sidis - a primitive tribal group who are the beneficiaries of the open sea cage culture programme of the Central Marine Fisheries Research Institute (CMFRI) under the Tribal Sub-Plan (TSP) of the Government of India. Using multistage random sampling method, a sample of 135 Sidi tribals were selected from Veraval and Talala taluks in Junagadh District of Gujarat. The group consisted of 45 Sidis practising cage culture, 45 non-practising beneficiaries of the tribal society and 45 Sidis who were non-practising non-beneficiaries of the society. The findings of the study revealed that most of the participant beneficiaries (58.33%) were having high school level of education, compared to non-participant beneficiaries, most of whom were illiterates (55.55%). It could be inferred that, the participant beneficiaries had a higher average monthly income of ` 1,216.25 when compared to non-participant beneficiaries who earned an average monthly income of ` 854.25. Among the participant beneficiaries, 41.67% had medium level of knowledge in cage culture, 50% had medium level of attitude and 75% had medium level of perceived skill in cage culture technologies

    It is evident that the variability of fish abundance in the sea has been increasing over time. This variability might be due to climate factors or anthropogenic factors such as fishing. Challenge of the modern fishery management is to distinguish between the two and take account of these sources of variability. As all of the marine fisheries resources of India are currently under exploitation, there is no control group available to distinguish climate effects from fishing effects. Here ,we are utilizing methods involving statistical controls for this purpose

    First report of a deep sea spider crab, Encephaloides armstrongi Wood-Mason and Alcock, 1891 from Gujarat waters of India

    A single specimen of the male crab (3.0 cm carapace length and 3.8 g body weight) was collected from the incidental catch sample of a multiday trawler operating at a depth range of 107-132 m off Gujarat coast of India. The detailed morphometric measurements and diagnostic features with updated systematics have been presented in this paper. The crab has well devolved branchial region and thrive in the oxygen minimum zone of the sea
