Arabian scad

The Arabian scad lives in the reef-associated, marine, depth range 20 - 100 m environment.

The Arabian scad (Trachurus indicus), which alone comprised 77% of the weight of the catches, was by far the most abundant species. A pelagic assemblage dominated by a few abundant species is characteristic for coastal upwelling systems. More

Figure 12 shows the distribution of the Arabian scad based on its occurrence in the trawl catches during the three coverages. More
