A. Arockiamary, S. Vijayalakshmi, T. Balasubramanian

It is important to study the abundances of eggs have been demonstrated to be a good indicators of the Engraulidae spawning population and size of the adults. Determining the abundance of eggs and larvae in Parangipettai water is less expensive to do than sampling the adults.A total of 8 fish eggs which comprising the order Clupeiformes and the family Engraulidae,were collected from Parangipettai, southeast coast of India. Eggs ofSetipinnataty, Stolephorus tri, S. heterolobus, S. punctifer, S. macrops,Thryssadussumieri,T. mystax, T. hamiltonii, were identified. These 8 species were taxonomically described. Among these eggs, Stolephorus tri eggs were observed as dominant. Maximum number of Engraulidae egg was collected during summer season.
