Study of the fish eggs is also a part of ichthyoplankton study which was conducted at Telaga Air, Kuching Sarawak for six months (24th October 2012 until 26th March 2013). The objectives of this study were to identify the species/ family composition of fish eggs in Telaga Air as well as to document the meristic and morphometric characteristic of fish eggs and lastly to determine the density of eggs (per 100 m3) according to different stations. The fish eggs samples were collected from 5 stations for each month using the plankton net with 1m diameter and 500 µm mesh size and a flow meter attached to the net’s mouth. A total of 2,668 fish eggs were collected. The identified samples comprise 12 families of fish eggs. The most abundant fish eggs collected was Engraulidae (73.58%) and followed by Gerreidae (6.68%). In each station, at least 4 families and the highest were 8 families were identified. The highest number of fish eggs collected was on October 2012 and the least was on February 2013. For morphology of fish eggs, 1,959 were ellipsoidal which belongs to family Engraulidae and the other 709 were spherical that consist of many family.
