Indian pellona

The Indian pellona lives in the pelagic, amphidromous, freshwater environment.

Indian pellona (Pellona ditchela) were caught in relatively good numbers in the bottom trawl west of Ras al Kuh and as stray individuals in Gwatar Bay. The major part of the catches of this species had started maturing. More

Orangemouth thryssa and Indian pellona shared a common distribution area and were not usually found in deeper water than 40 m. More
