Abstract

 Population Dynamics of Bigeye Scad, Selar crumenophthalmus in Bangaa Faru, Maldives

Selar crumenophthalmus (bigeye scad) locally known as mushimas, is a widely distributed fish in Maldives. For the biological study, random samples of Selar crumenophthalmus (bigeye scad) were collected from September 2012 to February 2013. The samples were caught from Bangaa faru, in Male’ atoll, Maldives. A total of 1648 samples were collected, with their fork length ranging from 7.7 cm to 24.5 cm (16.85 ± 2.82 cm) and body weight ranging between 8g to 255.6 g (87.76 ± 40.41g). FiSAT software was used in estimating the population parameters.
