Abstract: Study on the growth and mortality parameters of Indian mackerel, Rastrelliger kanagurta has been carried out based on the length frequency data.  Asymptotic length ((L)) and growth coeffient (K) were estimated as 320 mm and 1.87 yr-1 respectively.  Total, natural and fishing mortalities were 8.28, 2.64 and 5.64 yr-1 respectively. The exploitation rate (U) and exploitation ratio (E) were calculated as 0.68 and 0.69 respectively. As the exploitation ratio (E) is below the Emax (0.772) indicating that further increase in efforts can bring more catch of mackerel along the Ratnagiri coast.
