Publication Description :
A comparative study between pre-juvenile hilsa shad (Tenualosa ilisha) and Indian river shad (Gudusia chapra) using systematics study (morphometric measurements, meristic counts and external morphology) was conducted and significant differences were found between them. The findings of the present study will act as a catalogue to distinguish pre-juvenile hilsa shad and Indian river shad, which ultimately will help to sustain the hilsa population in Indian sub-continent waters.
