The present study investigates some aspects of the biology of newly recorded moony, Diamond fish, finger fish Monodactylus argenteus (Line) from Mithbav creek (L.160 20’ N.L170 25’), Sindhudurg district Maharashtra, India. This species is first time noticed in this creek. The local natives are commonly known as ‘Chand (Moon) fish. It is of diamond like shining and looking like a diamond shape. Diurnal fish collections were carried out from the creek between october 2011 to September 2012. The fish were caught with cast (mesh size 10-18mm) and gill nets (mesh size 15-22mm). The specimens were fresh directly for gut contents finding. Data on total length (SL) and body weight (w) measurements were taken from standard measuring board and with digital balance. Sexes were different separated by maro and microscopically examination of the gonads after making slit from the ventral to opercula region of the fish. The condition factor from the expression K=100w/L3. The main food items were plankton, detritus and larvae.
