Abstract: Marine ornamental fishes form a significant share of trawl fishery, which are generally discarded. Methodology followed for live collection of marine ornamental fish and equipments used are presented in the paper. Occurrence of live ornamental fishes in the trawl catches and factors affecting the survival rate of collected fishes are discussed. A check list of 66 species belonging to 35 families collected during the study is added in the text. Altogether 22 species were recommended as most suitable species for beginners, as they are hardy and easy to maintain in the tanks. Need for an in depth study on the distribution and abundance of the marine ornamental fishes often caught in the trawl fishery of the country is highlighted to evolve exploitation and utilization strategy. Results of present study will helps to overcome the present hurdles in the industry i.e. non-availability of continues supply of ornamental fishes for stocking.
