|Abstract:||The growth, mortality and exploitation ratio of <i>Loligo duvauceli</i> estimated by employing FiSAT Programme are reported. The asymptotic length (L ∞) and growth coefficient (K) were estimated as 385 mm and 0.85 y<sup> –1 </sup>respectively. The total, natural and fishing mortality co-efficients were calculated as 4.29, 1.82<sup> </sup>and 2.47 per year<sup> </sup>respectively. The present exploitation ratio is around 0.57. Relative yield per recruit analysis shows that the E<sub>max</sub> is 0.49. Yield isopleth diagram reveals that yield per recruit can be maximized at the exploitation ratio of 0.5 and Lc/L ∞ values of 0.4. Reduction in fishing effort is required to maximize the yield per recruit of <i>Loligo duvauceli</i> in Mumbai waters. Increase in cod end mesh size of trawls and reduction in the present level of effort are suggested to sustain the fishery of <i>Loligo duvauceli</i> in Mumbai waters.|
