Assessment of the age and growth of three fin fish species from a tropical estuary (Cochin, west coast of India) 1
This work provides the first information about the stock status of three fin fishes (Caranxheberi, Etroplussuratensis, and Oreochromis mossambicus) from this estuary. According to prior research, this estuary has seen a species reduction over time. It is vital to first learn about the stock status of the studied species because it is one of the most fished finfish species in this estuary. This study's findings will help formulate sustainable resource management.
