The current study were carried out investigation reproductive biology of Thinspine sea catfish, Plicofollis tenuispinis landed along the veraval centre of the saurashtra coast of the, India during the March 2016 to February 2017. The samples of the P. tenuispinis were brought from the recently landed catch at Veraval centre throughout the year of the study about 310 samples which is consisting of 143 male and 167 female individuals of the were examined for the investigation of the details. Revaling of these observations as overall sex ratio 1:1.2 for the male to female. Spawning season of the P. tenuispinis along the Veraval coast were February to June.
