Resumo: The biology of tarpon, Tarpon atlanticus (Cuvier & Valenciennes), is not well-known, in spite of the extensive literature existing upon that fish, which hás shown to be extremely difficult in obtaining accurate biological information (Breder Jr., 1944; Randall & Moffett, 1958). This results from the fact that tarpon, in spite of its vast area of geographic distribution (Briggs, 1958; Sadowsky, 1958; Carvalho, 1964), is generally considered as a sport fish, rarely being an object of commercial fishery. Fish- weir is one of the most constant characteristics along the coast of Ceará State (Brazil), concentrating around the Acaraú county, where it becomes a dominant complex in fishing activity (Seraine, 1958: Tarpon is the main product in the fisheries at the fish-weirs of the Acaraú county (Seraine, 1958). Its fishery is traditional, serving as a basis for one the most important económical activites of that county. With the purpose of having a better knowledge upon the biology of tarpon, we decided to collect systematic biological data on that fish in the area of the Acaraú county, starting 1962, of which the first results will be presented in this paper.
