Abstract views: 78 / PDF downloads: 77
AbstractBoth the species of catfishes viz., T. tenuispinis and T. thdassirms form
important fisheries along the Andhra, Orissa and West Bengal coasts contributing
about 20.8% of the demersal fish catches (Sekharan 1973a, & b).
Maturity, fecundity and spawning (Dan 1976); length-weight relationship (Dan
and Mojumder 1975) and the food and feeding (Mojumder and Dan, MS) of
the species have been studied. Pectoral spines in a few catfishes (Pantulu 1961,
62) were used in the study of their age and growth. The present paper deals
with the study of age and growth with the help of opercular bones, otoliths and
lengtii-frequency data in the catfish, T. tenuispinis.
