A present study has been undertaken to details to corals and coral reefs consists a rich variety of food and the marine aquarium fishes, referred to as marine ornamental or reef fishes are abundant in the tropical seas particularly in regions which are rich in corals, verity of shape, size and colours. It has a chain of 21 islands stretching from Mandapam to Tuticorin covering a distance of 140 kms along the coast site. The survey was conducted in five regions of Gulf of Mannar namely 1.Tuticorin, 2.Vembar, 3.Keelakarai, 4.Mandapam and 5.Rameswaram to record the resource potential during January 2013 to December 2013. Traps were used for fish collection in the reef areas such like Mandapam, Keelakarai, and Rameswaram. Here Tuticorin and Vembarregions fishes were collected from the trawl by catches. Immediately on capture the fishes were thoroughly cleaned and photographed. A total of 113 finfish species belongs to 24 families were collected during the study period. The species-rich families were Acanthuridae, Acanthuridae, Balistidae, Chaetodontidae, Labridae, Lutjanidae, Pomacentridae, Scaridae, Scorpaenidae, Siganidae, Tetraodontidae and Theraponidae. The findings of this study show that all the sites selected for study maintains a relatively rich assemblage of ornamental fishes. The ultimate solution to a long term sustainable trade of marine ornamental fishes can be achieved only through the development of fool proof aquaculture technologies.

Keywords: Gulf of Mannar, marine ornamental fishes, diversity, resource potential, coral fishes.
