For the carangids
, most of the catch was represented by amberjacks, mainly S.
Fishery and population dynamics of two species of carangids
, Decapterus russelli (Ruppell, 1830) and Megalaspis cordyla (Linnaeus, 1758) from Mumbai waters.
Les deux especes sont souvent suivies par d'autres predateurs de poissons efficaces, specialement des carangides
, les grands labrides et des ser-ranides pour profiter de la dexterite des poissons-chevres a &gager les proies.
To achieve this size, larvae must grow 0.5mm/day, a rate well within the range reported in other carangids
, 0.2-0.8mm/ day (Leis et al.
Species that frequent the area include surgeonfish, triggerfish (Balistidae), small carangids
, porcupinefish, sea chubs, goatfish, parrotfish and puffers.
(saurels, jacks, trevally, and similar) are middle-sized pelagic fish, although some are almost the same size and show the same gregarious behavior as small phytoplankton-eating fish.
Key components of the pelagic food-web in temperate and tropical seas -- clupeids, carangids
, scombrids and their predators, the oceanic sharks -- are absent or rare vagrants on the periphery of the Southern Ocean.

Little is known about the diet of smalltooth sawfish beyond general characterizations and a few observations from field sampling, anglers, and necropsies to document food items, including pink shrimp (as bait) and fish, such as clupeids, carangids
, mullet (Mugil spp.), pinfish (Lagodon rhomboides), and a stingray (Dasyatis sp.) (Bigelow and Schroeder, 1953; Poulakis et al., 2013).
The contribution of Megalaspis among carangids
was 24.16% while within the finfish resources of 1.63% was recorded in 2009, whereas its highest landing (9722mt) was recorded in 2001 and the lowest (3559mt) in 2008 (MFD, 2012).
For example, the species richness of carnivorous and piscivorous serranids (Bahia Honda: 10 species, Playa Blanca: 3), carangids
(BH: 11, PB: 4) and lutjanids (BH: 8, PB: 5) were greater in Bahia Honda compared to Playa Blanca.
Along with large coastal sharks many other fish such as serranids, carangids
, and other elasmobranchs are also caught and are either retained or discarded at sea.
Six species of carangids
were captured, but only O.
